Ohio House Bill 487 (ORC 3313.536) requires schools to inform students and parents/guardians of how you would be notified in an emergency situation.
In the event Twin Valley Community Local Schools were to suffer/encounter some type of an emergency or crisis situation during the school day, such as a terroristic attack, natural, or unnatural disaster, school administration will communicate information to parents/guardians as soon as practical in light of the circumstances. The school’s first priority, however, would be to ensure the safety of students and staff. Once the situation is at a manageable point, school administration will communicate to parents in the following priority:
"One Call Now" phone messaging
Parent Email (Based on school email sign-up)
Parent Text (Based on OneCall Now Text Sign-up)
Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, TVS School website)
Direct school to parent phone calls (Emergency Medical Authorization forms)
In the event of an emergency, students would be released to
parents/guardians in a controlled, accountable fashion. You would be given
information where and when to meet your students so as to avoid bottlenecks and
make for a quicker and safer reunification process. If you have questions, feel free to contact
your building principal.
