Emergency Procedures

Security Procedures

All school doors are locked at all times during school hours. A doorbell is available at the main door, where parents can be let in from the Main Office. All visitors must sign in at the Main Office. Please be advised that parents are not permitted to visit classrooms during the school day without prior permission from your child’s teacher.


Emergency Drills

While we hope that none of these situations ever arise, it is important for our students to know what to do in an emergency. Therefore, each year we have several fire and lockdown drills. We also have a school evacuation plan in place, which is not practiced with students, but is reviewed with the staff each year.


Directory Information

Directory information is verified yearly via the Demographic Information sheet mailed to your home in August. Please read through this form thoroughly and make any needed changes. This form is also used for press release permissions. If you do not wish for your child’s name and/or picture to be published in the media, please send a letter to the school as well as to the superintendent’s office. Please return this completed sheet with your child on the first day of school.


If you have a change in address, phone number, or emergency contact information during the school year, please contact your child’s teacher as well as the Main Office as soon as possible.


Snow Days/Weather Delays
In the event of inclement weather, the Rome City School District may declare a snow day or two hour delay. There are several ways that you can be notified: local television/radio stations, an automated phone call or text message from the school district, and the district’s website or facebook page. If you do not receive an automated call and would like to, please contact Roxanne Whipple at (315) 338-6569 .
