Our Mission

The Chula Vista Elementary School District has emergency procedures to be followed in the event of an earthquake, fire, or other emergency. Staff members are pre-assigned to school Emergency Response Teams and have specific duties during an emergency. The pro-active actions of individuals during an emergency may save another's life.

Disaster Preparedness

The Chula Vista Elementary School District has identified four major hazards that affect our geographic area: earthquake, flood, wildfire, and tsunami. Procedures to be followed in the event of an earthquake or other emergencies are practiced at least four times a year. School bus safe riding practices and bus evacuation drills are held annually. Child Nutrition Services personnel are prepared to operate the cafeterias as directed if it is necessary to feed children during an emergency.

School staff members will remain on duty until all children have been safely checked out by a parent, guardian, family member, neighbor, or childcare personnel designated on your child's school emergency card as being responsible for your child in case of an emergency. It is very important that you keep the information on your child's school emergency card up to date. Your child will not be released to persons other than those listed on the emergency or disaster card. Please see our Community Resources page for safety contacts.
