The McCabe Union Elementary School District assumes the responsibility of providing a safe environment for students, staff members, parents, and other visitors while being present at our school. In the event of an emergency that requires parents to be notified, the District will use the School Messenger program to email and send out a dialer to keep parents informed. The website will also be updated, as time permits, to keep everyone informed.
McCabe School District participates in one modified lockdown drill and one full lockdown drill per year. Teachers work with their students on being situationally aware of their surrounding for all surroundings and listen to the adults when outside. Staff is also situationally aware of surrounding and on how to get students' attention in the even of an emergency. There is a training for all staff at the beginning of the school year and prior to an emergency preparedness drill. Staff is also trained on using CatapultEMS, our emergency communication system, to communicate during an emergency. Our single school district also has both the transportation department and Maintenance and Operations department on site for support. We have over 50 hand held radios to communicate and six 800mhz radios to directly communicate with law enforcement.
