Alta vista takes steps every day to protect students and staff. Our crisis response plan includes strategies to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from a crisis in our schools.
Prevention - The best way to address a crisis is to prevent it from ever happening. Alta Vista utilizes several programs including
secure buildings, and
check-in procedures for visitiors.
Preperation - Alta Vista's crisis planning process includes preparing students and staff for possible dangers by:
holding regular drills for hazards like fire, severe weather, and intruders
regulary updating the crisis response plan
regulary training of the crisis response teams.
Recovery - After a crisis, Alta Vista will work to help students and staff recover from the experience and get back to a sense of normalcy by:
working with district counselors, local mental health workers and local clergy to provide counseling to those affected
returning to the learning process as soon as possible.
