Responding to An Emergency
To report an emergency at one of our schools or facilities, first call 911, then report it to our district at (478)353-8000.
In the event of a snowstorm, hurricane, threat to campus or other emergency event, Dublin City Schools will implement safety procedures and may change school start or dismissal times for student safety.
Here are the ways we communicate emergency information:
- Automated text messages. Please provide your school with current telephone numbers to reach you and other emergency contacts.
- Announcements on district and school websites.
- Announcements on social media. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
- Announcements on TV and radio.
Family Dos and Don'ts
Student safety is our number one priority. Our schools have safety plans in place to handle natural disasters, security issues, and other emergency situations, in coordination with local law enforcement and first responders.
Help us keep your child safe by following these emergency DOs and DON’Ts.
DO: Prepare in Advance
Bookmark our Website: We will post the latest available information on our homepage. Check back frequently for updates and instructions on when and where you can pick up your child if parent pick-up is necessary.
Get Connected: Make sure we have your current phone number and email address so we can reach you quickly with an automated text, or email about an emergency situation. When you move, change jobs or get a new number, please update your contact information with your child's front office.
Rush to the School: Coming to school may put you or your child at great risk. Additional people on the scene distract first responders from their primary job – student safety. Instead, check our website & social media channels or your phone for information and instructions.
Call Your Child's School: Resources are stretched thin during emergencies. Incoming calls take away from our ability to get updates to you through our website, mass notification system and social media platforms.
