Dear Parents/Guardians of Canby Schools,
It is April! We are already well in to the third trimester and moving toward May – incredible! I want to thank everyone for the kind words of support I’ve received since accepting the Canby superintendent position. From my first day last July, I have been impressed with the staff, administrators, teachers, parents, and community members who contribute so much to this district. The Canby School Board is committed to a district known for excellence. I have no doubt that as a team we will provide every student the opportunity to be successful during their time in the Canby School District. Our goal must be centered on providing the very best for our students.
The safety and security of students and staff is our top priority. The Canby School District has adopted the “I Love U Guys” Standard Response Protocol (SRP) for emergency procedures. The SRP is designed to guide administrators, staff, and students to respond appropriately to emergencies that may occur in or near our schools.
SRP – 4 Actions
– threat or hazard is outside the school building
: brought inside school building and exterior doors are locked and secured. Whenever possible, classroom activities would continue uninterrupted.
: please monitor your phone line, email, and Twitter for communication from Canby School District.
– threat or hazard is inside the school building
: classrooms are locked, teachers turn off lights and keep students quiet and out of sight of any internal threat.
: please monitor your phone line, email, and Twitter for communication from Canby School District and wait for notification regarding reunification.
– moving students from the building to an outside area or another location
: leave personal items and move in an orderly fashion to predetermined location.
: you will be notified of the evacuation site and asked to pick up your child. You or an authorized person would also be asked to show picture ID and complete a reunification form before your child would be released.
– drop, cover, and hold for specific shelter scenarios
: drop, cover, and hold and follow specific instruction from school personnel.
: please wait until hazard has passed and for communication from Canby School District regarding unification.
Since December 2014, our schools have conducted regular drills following the new protocol. Parents are encouraged to discuss appropriate emergency response procedures with their students.
