Safety Announcement

The safety and security of our students is our highest priority in the Littleton Elementary School District. Each school in the district has an emergency response plan reviewed annually by the school emergency response team. These plans include protocols for potential hazards that could occur at a school. How efficient and successful these safety methods are depend in part on you.

First, we ask you to make sure your school has the current contact information for you and anyone authorized to serve as an emergency contact and that your child's health/medication information is up to date.

In case of an emergency, we know that your first instinct is to call or drive to the school. We respectfully ask that you do not do either of these things. Calling the school can tie up phone lines and driving over can clog up traffic lanes and impede access necessary for response teams.

In the event of an emergency, please trust that your district will be communicating. Littleton ESD uses text, email, and an autodialer on a regular basis for routine communication. In emergency situations, we do the same which is why having correct phone numbers and email addresses are critical to our safety plans. You can also expect to see updated information on Facebook and Twitter.

While we hope we never have to implement these safety protocols, we will continue to share safety strategies and expectations.

Raising A Reader
