Emergency Preparedness


The West Allegheny School District Preparedness Team meets with local law enforcement agencies to ensure the district's response plan is effective and provides a safe and supportive environment for our students and staff.

Parents:  Be prepared for a School Emergency

  • Ensure that your child's emergency contact information is current and accurate.
  • Become familiar with your schools' emergency and reunification procedures. 
In Case of a School Emergency
Please follow the following tips:
  • DO NOT call or rush to your child's school. Phone lines and staff are needed for emergency response efforts.
  • Check for email or voicemail messages from the school.
  • Check the district's website.
  • Rely only on official communication from your school or law enforcement officials.
  • Listen for official information regarding reunification with your child.
