Osseo Area Schools has a comprehensive emergency plan developed with the help of local law enforcement, emergency management, and public health officials. Drills are routinely held in all district buildings to prepare students and employees for emergencies. The emergency plan is based on an “all-hazard” approach that incorporates four universal response actions that can be implemented quickly. In the rare event of an emergency, the school principal or a district administrator will implement one of the following actions as needed.
All students and staff will move into the building. Exterior doors and windows will be locked and public access to the school will be temporarily suspended. If a potentially hazardous substance has been released into the environment, ventilation systems will be temporarily disabled to keep out contaminants.
During a shelter-in-place or lockdown, building access will be restricted to the public, including parents.
