B. Crime in Progress, Fire, and Medical Emergencies

A severe thunderstorm and tornado watch is issued when there is the possibility that weather conditions could lead to a severe storm. In case of a tornado watch, faculty should be prepared to move to shelter if the watch turns into a warning.
D. Fire Alarm Response
If the fire alarm in a building should sound, employees should follow the procedures specified below:
If possible, DIAL 9-1-1 and report the fire.
Evacuate the building using the nearest exit. Do not use the building elevator.
When leaving a building, close all doors to reduce the spread of heat and smoke. Contact the Office of Environment Health and Safety for complete information and literature on fire safety procedures or check out their web site at http://ehs.illinoisstate.edu/
A. Reporting Procedures
- The State Law of Illinois requires school personnel to report cases of suspected child abuse.
- The suspected abused child and the identifier must report to the school nurse.
The school nurse will inform the appropriate administrator (in case of a Metcalf or University High student enrolled in a Heart of Illinois Low Incidence Association program, the building principal shall be contacted).
B. Department of Children and Family Services
- The school nurse or the identifier must report cases of suspected abuse to the Department of Children and Family Services. The report may be done by telephone to the Department of Children and Family Services.
- The building administrator, or appointed designee, will notify the appropriate personnel as necessary. Notification may be done immediately or following the receipt of a report from the Department of Children and Family Services.
- The Department of Children and Family Services is required to conduct their investigation within twenty-four hours.
- The school nurse will compile the report from the Department of Children and Family Services and the school report. The report will be completed within three school days from receipt of the Department of Children and Family Services report.
- A copy of the report will be given to the appropriate administrator (the information is NOT to be put in the child’s cumulative folder). The official copy will kept in the files in the nurse’s office.
In the event of a crisis in the Laboratory Schools, the Crisis Action Policy steps will be taken depending on the type of crisis faced. The first priority of the Laboratory Schools will be the safety and well being of all students and employees. Please refer to the Crisis Action Policy for more detailed information. Copies of the policy are available in the main office of each building.
