The Moorpark Unified School District has developed a District-wide Emergency Response Plan to assure the safety and welfare of the students and staff. In addition, each school has developed a Safe School Plan designed to meet the specific needs of the school. Each school site is prepared and equipped to respond as an independent unit, including the storage of water and first aid supplies. A three-day supply of food is stored within the District for each site. During a disaster, all District employees automatically become disaster service workers and are required to remain on site to care for the children.
During an emergency situation, the District will be in close communication with emergency response agencies, fire, police and the City of Moorpark's Emergency Operations Center.
Students in kindergarten through eighth grade will be released only to their parents or designees following a major disaster. Students in grades 9-12 may be released at the Principal's discretion, when it is deemed safe.
The Moorpark Unified School District held a parent information meeting on Wednesday, January 9, 2013. Staff reviewed existing safety plans and security measures at each of the school sites.
