School Information » Emergencies



It is important that you keep the office up-to-date with current phone numbers of your home, work, cell, and emergency contact persons (should we be unable to contact you).

The following procedures have been adopted by the Governing Board and shall remain in effect until further notice:

It is the declared policy of the Governing Board of the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District to release pupils from school in the event of an emergency situation to a parent or an authorized adult. If a major disaster were to strike during school hours, we will not send children home to unknown dangers so please be prepared to come and pick up your child.

An Emergency Operations Center will be set up to facilitate the orderly release of children.


Fire drills are conducted monthly while earthquake and shelter in place drills are held several times throughout the year. In accordance with California law, the Governing Board must review annually district emergency procedure plans.
