The Mt. Lebanon School District is committed to taking proactive measures to protect the safety of all our students and staff members. We have made preparations to deal effectively with emergency situations that could occur in or around the school while classes are in session. While we hope that a natural disaster or other serious incident never occurs, our goal is to be as prepared as possible for any potential emergency. Our priority at all times is to protect all students and staff from harm.
The District and all school facilities have crisis and safety plans. The plans are designed with the assistance of administrative staff members, as well as local law enforcement, emergency management, and public health officials. The plans, which are regularly reviewed and updated, include procedures to respond to a variety of crisis incidents. School district personnel and students practice the drills associated with some of these specific emergencies on a regular basis.
In addition, Mt. Lebanon School District administrators consult with local, state, and federal health, safety and emergency personnel to develop and maintain plans for coping with a variety of emergency response situations. The District's Safety and Security Committee, made up of school administrators and staff, representatives of the Mt. Lebanon Police Department, Mt. Lebanon Fire Department, and local emergency management personnel, meet during the school year to discuss crisis response, management and communication. Members of the committee are NIMS certified and attend state and local safety and security training sessions annually.
If you have any questions about your school's safety and support responses, please contact your school principal.
