School Emergency Guide

The Carmel Central School District takes emergency preparedness very seriously. We have a comprehensive district-wide safety plan that assists our staff and public safety partners to respond swiftly should an emergency occur. We provide ongoing crisis management training to school administrators and other key staff members throughout the district.

Building level emergency response plans are in place at each school. A building-based safety committee oversees the plan for each school and committee members have assigned roles and responsibilities should an emergency occur. These committees meet regularly to review procedures and conduct annual training and rills so that students and staff are aware of the most effective and safe emergency response.
