The Huntington Beach Union High School District (HBUHSD) is a member of the HB Safe Schools Coalition, which is comprised of local school districts and the Huntington Beach Police Department. The Safe Schools Coalition was created to respond to a critical school incident (examples: an armed intruder, a local power plant catastrophe) that requires a school evacuation offsite. In the event any HBUHSD school experiences a critical incident and must evacuate students offsite, staff from our other schools, along with police and city employees will activate an evacuation plan so parents/guardians and their students can be reunified as soon as possible.
The evacuation plan is designed to protect students and keep them safe. Police, school, and city personnel have been trained and are prepared to implement the plan. In order to maintain student safety during the evacuation process, our schools are relying on parent/guardian cooperation. The following instructions are provided so parents/guardians/authorized persons have an overview of the plan and understand the procedures for reuniting with their child after an evacuation.
When the student is ready to be released, they will be escorted by school personnel from the library to the Student Release Area where the student will be released to the parent/guardian/authorized person.
Our district is dedicated to keeping our students safe, and this is one more way we can stay prepared to do just that.
