Emergency Procedures

  • To All Parents of HISD Students:

    HISD is committed to the safety and security of students, employees, and visitors at all of our campuses.  In support of that commitment, the HISD Emergency Operations Plan will be followed in the event of a crisis situation.  The objective of this plan is to ensure the health, safety and welfare of students and staff in the event of an emergency.

    Although it is impossible to foresee all the potential emergencies, we have made preparations to effectively use our resources to respond to those emergencies that cannot be avoided.  The responsibilities are shared between school administrators and parents.  Incidents or crises on our campuses can be minimized, and positive outcome reached, through shared cooperation between parents of our students and HISD administration.
