Emergency Communication Process

Emergency Communication Process Outlined below is the process that will be used to notify families, students, staff, and community members about an emergency - during school hours, after-hours, or on the weekend.

● Families will receive automated *phone calls and emails from the district stating; 1) A description of the emergency, 2) The status of the situation; and 3) Details on what communication methods will be used to provide additional information as it becomes available.

● Accurate and confirmed information will be posted on the AUSD website(s) and AUSD Facebook.

● If an emergency takes place during school hours, you may receive a text or call from a student before AUSD can release accurate and confirmed information. Please turn to the AUSD communication methods outlined above for accurate, updated and confirmed information.

● If an emergency takes place during school hours, staff will be given direction and receive updates from the site administrators and/or District administration. If an emergency takes place during non-school hours, staff will be notified by email.

* Families will receive automated phone calls to all provided primary & secondary numbers. Please ask the school secretary to assist you if: 1) You do not currently receive any automated phone calls or emails from the district or school; and/or 2) You do not know how to access the AUSD website or the AUSD Facebook page.
