    Emergency Management

    As child safety is a primary concern, Sunrise Elementary has a comprehensive emergency preparation plan. Each classroom has a well-stocked emergency bucket that accompanies the class whenever the building is evacuated.  If the need arises to evacuate our children and have parents pick them up, we want you to be aware of the following information.

    Student Pick-up Area

    In the event that our children are evacuated to our playground and need to be sent home, parents may pick them up at the designated Student Release Area, which is located on the east side of the playground area near the street 455 East.  A runner will be sent to the student evacuation area to summon the child to their waiting parent at the Student Release area.  A sign out sheet will be used to document the release of a student to a parent or authorized parent designee.

    Alternate Evacuation Site

    If it becomes necessary to evacuate our children to an alternate site, Sky View High School serves as the Sunrise Elementary primary evacuation site.  In the event that evacuation to Sky View is not feasible, the church located on 120 south and approximately 600 East will be used.  A third evacuation site, in the event that the other two sites are not usable, is Summit Elementary School.
