Trustland Plan 2013-14
Lake View Stakeholder,
The Lake View Community Council has created a land trust plan for the 2013-2014 school year. The land trust plan is basically a plan deciding how to use the money given to us by the public school land trust here in the state of Utah.
For next school year, we will be receiving almost $30,000. That money will be used to pay the wages of 5 instructional aides. These instructional aides will work with students from various grade levels. They will be spending most of their time with small groups of students. The aides will help us to conduct intervention groups so that students may receive additional instruction in order to understand a difficult concept.
These aids will make a big difference for our students. We are grateful for the money that makes it possible for us to provide this extra assistance to our students. If you would like more detailed information about our land trust plan, the community council, or anything else, please feel free to give us a call.
At Lake View we are saddened by the recent tragedy at the school in Connecticut. We have reviewed our safety procedures and we have made a few changes. Here is a list of steps that have been taken to improve school safety: All exterior doors to the school will now be kept locked at all times. Only the front door will remain open. In the near future, all exterior classroom doors will be modified so that they are impossible to unlock. All teachers have been instructed to keep their interior classroom doors locked at all times. The doors will usually be propped open as is typical in school, but the handles will be kept locked so that precious seconds would not be wasted fumbling with keys to make sure the door is locked.
Teachers have been instructed to discuss lock-down procedures with their students and practice getting into a secure place within the classroom so that they cannot be seen or heard from the classroom door. Lock-down drills as well as an evacuation to the church building will also be held shortly. We have permission to use the church building adjacent to the school in the event of an emergency that would not allow us to return to the building. The principal is also planning to meet with local law enforcement representatives to review our emergency plans.
To follow are the school emergency plans currently in place. If you have questions, please contact the school. Lake View Elementary Emergency Procedures Fire Drill and Evacuation Procedures Teachers should prepare their students ahead of time for evacuation, lock-down and earthquake drills. Drills will be held on a regular basis. An evacuation drill is required each month. Other drills will be held as needed. Most drills will be announced in advance to teachers and staff. If a drill is not announced, it may be an actual emergency and should be treated as such. All personnel: teachers, aides, custodians, visitors, repairmen, parents, students, etc. MUST evacuate the building in the event of an emergency or drill.
Evacuation Steps to Take: 1. Turn off lights and close door as you leave. The teacher should be the last one out of the room. 2. Take emergency bucket/bag including your class roll. Evacuate the building according to plan. 3. Proceed directly to your assigned meeting area. Please move in a quick and orderly fashion. Be sure to walk with your students. 4. Have your students get into a straight line. 5. Take roll to assure that all of your students have been accounted for. 6. Hold up either the red or green card indicating all clear or that there is a problem. 7. Remain at your station until the administration clears you to enter the building. Bomb Threats In the event of a bomb threat or similarly dangerous situation, instructions will be relayed to teachers via intercom or in person. In most situations, the building will be evacuated to ensure student safety and allow for a search of the building. Students should not be informed of the nature of the situation at this time. If teachers or staff members discover conditions that are suspicious, they should report this at once to school administration.
Lock-Down Steps to Take: 1. Once a lock down has been announced, immediately check the hallway to be sure it is clear of students, then close and lock your door. 2. Turn off your lights. Close your blinds. Have your students move to a location in the room where they would not be visible from the door. 3. Keep your students calm and quiet. Remain where you are until you are given further instructions via the intercom. 4. Silently take roll to account for all of your students who are present that day. 5. DO NOT open the door for anyone. If the person is ok to enter, they will have a key. This includes the police and other emergency responders.
Shelter in Place Steps to Take: 1. Once a shelter in place situation has been announced, immediately make sure that all of your students are present and accounted for. 2. If any of your students are missing from the classroom, they should immediately return to the classroom. Take the steps necessary to gather any of your own missing students into your classroom. 3. Close and lock your door. 4. Students are not allowed to leave the classroom for any reason other than an emergency. 5. Remain in this status until given further instruction by school administration.
Emergency Occurs During Lunch or Recess: In the event a lock down type emergency occurs during lunch or recess, students should be directed to listen to the announcements that will be given. They will be instructed whether they should return to their classrooms, stay inside the cafeteria, or evacuate the building to the area designated for fire drills. Those teachers whose classes are at lunch should listen closely to the announcements. They should report to their classrooms, the cafeteria, or the designated evacuation area to help with student supervision. Evacuation to the Church In the event that it becomes necessary for us to evacuate the building and we are not able to return, we would walk to the church building adjacent to the school. In most scenarios, we would evacuate the building first and follow normal procedures. We would go to our standard evacuation stations out on the field. If necessary, we would then walk as classes to the church and enter the building.
