STUDENT HEALTH, WELL-BEING AND SAFETY
The Seymour Community School would like to stress that the safety of students, staff and visitors is a priority. It is very important that anyone who is in the school or on school property should conduct himself or herself carefully and with concern for their own and other's safety. Students [knowledgeable adults] are encouraged to notify teachers or the administration of risks of injury or harm to themselves or others. A few other safety reminders include, but are not limited to: students should always walk down the right side of the hallway, obey all traffic laws when entering and leaving the school grounds, no running or yelling in the hallways, no pushing and shoving in the hallways and always beware of traffic when crossing the street between the school and the parking lots.
Periodically the school holds emergency drills. At the beginning of each semester, teachers will notify students of the procedures to follow in the event of an emergency. will participate and adhere to the predetermined emergency drills and procedures. Emergency procedures and proper exit areas are posted in all rooms.
Students are expected to remain quiet and orderly during a drill or an emergency. Students who pull the fire alarm or call in false alarms, in addition to being disciplined under the school district's policies, rules and regulations, may be reported to law enforcement officials.
