Crisis Management Guide

Crisis Management Guide

All staff members have received a copy of our building’s Crisis Management Guide and have been trained regarding its implementation. A copy is posted in every classroom and procedures will be drilled with the entire student body in the near future and throughout the year. You can feel confident that we, in conjunction with local police and security consultants, have developed a comprehensive plan to prevent and react to most foreseeable crises.


The Fort Zumwalt School District provides a Safeline to assist our families and students in reporting the following:

  • Situations involving the safety of students or staff

  • Threats of violence

  • Sexual harassment

  • Abuse (physical or sexual)

  • Crisis situations such as death or health issues

  • Suspected drug or alcohol use or distribution

  • Bullying

Please be advised that routine school questions should be directed to the appropriate school personnel during the regularly scheduled school day. Please utilize Safeline for the reporting of vital information only. Abuse of this line or report of inappropriate information will result in disciplinary action. The Safeline is monitored by a district Crisis Counselor between the hours of 7:00am and 6:00pm and may be utilized by anyone needing to share urgent information. Voicemail will receive calls and calls will be returned when warranted.
