Top of PageProactive Measures
The Orland Unified School District takes proactive measures to protect the safety of all our students and staff members.
  • OUSD representatives attend safe schools trainings.
  • District representatives work in close collaboration with local emergency personnel to develop and maintain plans for coping with a variety of emergency response situations.
  • Plans are regularly reviewed and updated.
  • School system personnel practice these drills on a regular basis.

Top of PageActions in Emergencies
Actions taken during any type of emergency situation depend a great deal on the specifics of the incident.

If an incident occurs at a school, we ask that parents do not go directly to the school. School staff is prepared to maintain as safe and normal an environment as possible within the school. School is not automatically cancelled in emergency situations. Indeed, school may be the safest place for children to be during some emergency conditions.

In times of emergency, a variety of local media will be used to provide information. Parents should:
  • tune into local major radio and television stations
  • call the district office at (530) 865-1200 or
  • visit this district website for emergency updates

Top of PageRelease of Students
Students will not be released to parents if public safety officials have declared that:
  • it is dangerous for parents to travel to the school to pick up students, or
  • the lives of persons in the school would be jeopardized in opening the outside school doors, or
  • the school is otherwise restricted by those officials.
Students will be released to parents as soon as officials have determined it is safe. Students will be released only to parents or other individuals listed on the student's emergency card. No student will be released to any individual who is not specifically listed on the emergency card, including an older sibling. All adults must show photo ID when picking up a student.

Parents can help by giving the most accurate, up-to-date health and emergency information to the school office.
