School Rules

Los Altos functions under three overarching rules:

  • Be Safe
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Respectful

Emergency Release Plan

School safety is our number one priority. In case of a school emergency or natural disaster, such as an earthquake, you need to be aware of our school's plan for releasing your child. Instructions for reunification with your child will be communicated to you by the school or District. Please do not take it upon yourself to come to the school based upon media reports, which may be erroneous.

Our concern is for the safe and orderly dismissal of our students. If as many as 400 to 500 parents arrive at our school at approximately the same time to pick up students, your cooperation and patience are essential to our plan.

Parking will be very limited, so be prepared to park away from the school and under the direction of first responders. DO NOT DOUBLE PARK as it may interfere with getting emergency vehicles into our school site.

For the safety of your child, before allowing you to take him/her home, we must document to whom each child is released. When you arrive at school, you will be directed to our "Request Gate/Check in area." A runner will be sent to the student supervision area, and escort your child to the "Release Gate," where you can reunite with your child. In extreme circumstances, a student reunification area may be set up off-campus, and generally in collaboration with emergency responders.

You will be required to sign for the release of your child. This is extremely important as it is our only means of ensuring that all students are accounted for at all times. Be prepared to present a picture identification card if requested. Please do not just take your child from the center without signing for their release. We recognize that you may be worried and want to be reunited with your child as quickly as possible. However, this system has been established to ensure your child's safety.

It is imperative that you keep all information on your child's Emergency Card up-to-date. Your child will only be released to those listed on the card. These procedures should be shared with everyone you list on the Emergency Card so they are familiar with our procedures.

Thank you for your cooperation.
