École Corinthia Park School
Our Hour Zero program has individual school emergency plans as well as a Division Plan that are reviewed annually and after an emergency occurs. There is an on-site School/Site Emergency Response Team (SERT) at each school, along with a Division-based Administrative Command Team (ACT) for emergency responses that provides support and aid to schools at time of an emergency.
Families should familiarize themselves with some of the common protocols and terms we use during an emergency. When a school is confronted with an emergency, staff will assess the situation and then decide on a course of action. In addition to the procedures described below, schools also practice protocols such as “Drop-Cover-Hold,” a method of protecting vital body parts during some natural disasters, and conduct fire drills.
