Sheltering in Place
Dangerous situations require appropriate actions to prevent serious harm. Here are some brief tips. For more information, go the Shelter In Place page.
Severe storms can create dangerous situations, often very quickly. Seek shelter in doors and if flooding is a possibility, move above ground if possible. If you are outdoors and cannot find shelter, do not stand under tall objects such as light poles or tall trees that can attract lightning.
If a person with a weapon threatens to use it, people around him or her must react quickly. Running away as quickly as possible is the best option. The next best option is to secure yourself in a room that can lock and cannot be easily entered. Just remember to silence all electronic devices. The last resort is to be prepared to fight back. For more information on this topic, please visit the Shelter In Place page on this website and log into your portal and see the video "Guidance for Surviving an Active Shooter Situation." (The link is posted at the bottom of the page under "Student Resources" menu, or in the older portal under "Quick Links menu.)
IMPORTANT: Make sure your emergency information is up to date so that you can receive emergency text and email notifications.
