Should a school emergency, closing, or cancellation occur, you will be notified by phone or e-mail via the school’s individual notification procedure. A phone message or e-mail will inform you of the most current information available at the time. Information will also be provided on www.busd.org and through the mobile phone app. If it is an ongoing event, updates will be sent to you.

Bellevue Union School District is committed to providing a safe environment for students, staff and visitors. We work closely with our local safety officials - police, fire, emergency medical services, public health and the Emergency Services Program at RESIG, to ensure our schools are well prepared for an emergency. We have a Comprehensive Safety Plan that covers a wide variety of emergencies that serves as a guide to help staff and our public safety partners respond swiftly should a crisis occur in our schools.

This guide provides an overview of the many safety measures our Bellevue Union School District Schools have implemented and serves as a resource for parents and students should there be an emergency or if schools need to be closed or be cancelled due to inclement weather.  Please read the following important information carefully, and then keep this guide where you can refer to it quickly.

Safety Measures and Staff Training in Our Schools

Parents should be assured to know that the safety measures in place in our schools are extensive. Our school district staff works diligently to ensure our emergency plan is current and that all staff members are prepared to respond to a wide variety of school emergencies. Every one of our schools has numerous safety measures in place to provide a safe learning environment for our students.

As a Parent How Can You Prepare for a School Emergency?

As a parent, it is important to provide accurate emergency contact information to your child's school and notify the school office staff if it changes. This will allow school staff to provide you with timely updates using our notification system. It is critical that your child’s school has access to your current phone numbers and e-mail addresses during an emergency situation.

How Should You Use Communications during a School Emergency?

During an emergency, it is critical that parents receive accurate and timely information and directions from school officials before going to the school site. Our school and district will do everything possible to make sure that accurate and timely information will be released to parents during any emergency.

Should an emergency situation occur at your child's school, it is important that you know:

Each school has a procedure for parent-child re-unification. Parents/guardians/emergency contacts will be directed to a specific location where they will be required to show photo identification. Remember, a student can only be released to an adult that is documented as an emergency contact. If you are a non-custodial parent, you must be listed on the student’s emergency contact card as a guardian and show photo identification.
