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.
