A biological threat is a release of germs or biological substances that can cause sickness, may be inhaled, enter through non-intact skin, be eaten or passed on from another person. A biological threat may or may not be immediately obvious. While it is possible that you will see signs of a biological attack, it is perhaps more likely that local health care workers will report a pattern of unusual illness. At the time a biological emergency is declared, be suspicious, but do not automatically assume that any illness is the result of the emergency. Symptoms of many common illnesses may overlap. Use common sense, practice good hygiene and cleanliness to avoid spreading germs, and seek medical advice Notify office immediately Instruct everyone to cover their mouth and nose and breathe through 2-3 layers of fabric ( t-shirt, towels, paper towels, tissue, etc.) Evacuate area immediately Isolate any people who have come in contact with the substance Instruct everyone to wash with soap and water Await instructions from office or supervisor Take attendance and report missing or ill individuals to supervisor Do not eat or drink while exposed to potentially contaminated substances

When the administration becomes aware of an incident that is of a life-threatening nature, the administration or its designee will make the following PA announcement: “Attention all staff members, we are in Emergency Lockdown.” This announcement will be repeated three times, calmly but firmly, to ensure that all classes ( outside gym classes, shops with machines, business education, etc.) will hear it. Staff members are to get students out of the line of sight from the hallway and secure classroom door(s). The use of cell phones and two-way radios is NOT recommended during an emergency lockdown. Staff should use the district phone system to make necessary calls (i.e. 911). Cell phones and two-way radios should only be used when you are more than 500 feet from the building. Fire alarm During an emergency lockdown procedure, do not exit the building if the fire alarm sounds unless your room/ area is in immediate danger (i.e., fire, smoke). Green and Red Indicator Cards (see above attached cards) If it can be done without further risk to staff or students, the appropriate card should be slid under the main door of the room. These cards will assist local authorities to prioritize their response. Green card—Room secure and no medical emergency present Red card—Presence of medical emergency or need for immediate assistance Status changes during emergency lockdown During an emergency lockdown, do not follow any public address announcements. At the conclusion of an emergency lockdown, each individual classroom will be released by local authorities (i.e., police, fire department) and provided with further instructions.
