School Safety

Should a school emergency closing or cancellation occur, the public will be notified by

local radio stations and INFOCONNECT. Parents registered for NotifyMe will be

notified by email.  The message, e-mail, etc.,  will be the most current information available

at the time.  If the emergency is an ongoing event, the same media will provide updates.  


The Hamblen County Board of Education is committed to providing a safe environment for

students, staff and visitors.  The department works closely with state and local safety

officials – police, fire, emergency medical services, and public health – in order to ensure our

schools are well prepared for an emergency.  Together we have developed an

Emergency Response Plan that has assigned responsibilities for personnel to address a wide

variety of emergencies. The Emergency Response Plan serves as guide to help staff and our

public safety agencies respond quickly should a crisis occur in our schools.  


The information included on this page serves as a guide for school personnel, parents, and

students should there be a school emergency.
