How we prepare

be prepared sign

Thompson School District promotes emergency readiness through comprehensive planning in collaboration with emergency service providers (police, sheriff, fire, and medical). Readiness planning is conducted through school crisis teams and the district's Crisis Incident Response Team. Every school has a crisis team that plans and prepares for emergency needs within their building. In order to further school support, the district works with other outside agencies to serve each and every student and the district at large. These agencies work in unison to bring about immediate and appropriate responses to any emergency incident that may occur.

Emergency incident response plans are aligned with guidance from the Department of Homeland Security, the Colorado Department of Public Safety, and the U.S. Department of Education. The universal elements of readiness are:

Prevent / Mitigate, Plan / Preparation, Response / Intervention, Recovery / Reunification.
