Pine Tree ISD has implemented the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) to assist in practicing safe and secure schools. This method was created by the I Love U Guys Foundation in Colorado, and allows the district to incorporate an efficient emergency response plan.
The SRP developed five actions to practice during an emergency or crisis:
Secure – is called due to a threat or hazard is outside the school building. All students and staff will remain indoors, and the perimeter will be secured.
Lockdown – is called when a threat or hazard is inside the school building. All students and staff will remain quiet and out-of-sight in the classroom with the lights out and doors locked.
Evacuate – is called when students and staff need to move to another location. All students and staff will be moved to a different location or outside of the school building.
Shelter – is called for personal protection due to a threat or hazard, for example, a tornado or hazmat situation.
Hold – occurs when there is a situation that requires students and staff to remain in the classroom.
All Pine Tree ISD employees and students will participate in trainings and drills to ensure their safety.
