Crisis Management Plan In developing my school’s Crisis Management Plan, we have a “Canned Unit Plan” that is revised each

year. This updated plan that consists the Role of the players in the school, Responsibilities of facility, and Contact information with the community while adding revisions to the plan. The philosophy of Iditarod’s Elementary Plan is to understand the Elementary Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is one of OSHA’s required plans. The plan will interface with the District’s EOP and will fulfill OSHA requirements. The process for responding to and managing a crisis event that impacts Iditarod Elementary (IDE) is an event that impacts Iditarod Elementary School with a potential for creating a significant negative impact. IDE staff are to familiarize themselves with their responsibilities under this site specific EOP and the School District’s EOP. IDE shall have developed internal procedures for maintain day to day operations as well as assisting with the School District’s emergency response activities when required. IDE is encouraged to conduct training, drills, and exercises to indoctrinate staff roles required during an emergency or disaster event.

Pandemic Flu: What is it?
Influenza is more commonly called the flu and is an infection caused by a virus. Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, fatigue and, in some cases, diarrhea and vomiting. To keep from spreading the disease is by washing our hands, and covering our mouth and nose when we cough or sneeze. “Pandemic” means that the disease is spreading around the world and is making large numbers of people sick. In a flu pandemic, many people may become ill, so it is important that people try to care for the sick at home until they get well. During a flu pandemic, listen to your radio and TV or go online to get the latest information. For IDE, students and parents should know how not to get the Flu or spread the Flu. Here is some basic management of Flu: *Get a flu vaccine, when it becomes available. *Cough or sneeze in your sleeve, or use a tissue and throw it away in the garbage. *Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. *Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. *Limit contact with others. *Stay home if you are sick. *Separate sick people from well people as best as possible. *Wash dishes and laundry with soap and hot water. *Clean surfaces touched by sick people with a household disinfectant that kills viruses. (e.g., bleach, Lysol®, Clorox Clean Up® or other store brand).

In case of Emergency at IDE:

Student’s parents will be contacted after recommendation from nurse. Health officials might recommend “social distancing” techniques, such as closing schools or reducing public gatherings, as ways to keep people from spreading the disease.

Monitor and evaluate the management and operational systems through planning, training, drilling and continuous improvement. Check List:
*All-Hazard Types: The commonalities among all types of technological and natural disaster suggest strongly that many of the same management strategies can apply to all emergency. *Emergency management Partnerships: The burden of disaster management, and the resources for it, requires a close working partnership among all levels of government and offices within the Mat-Su District, along with the private sector and industries, volunteer organizations, and general public. Emergency Lifecycle: Disasters do not just appear one day. Rather, they exist throughout time and have occurrence lifecycle which must be matched by a series of management phases that include strategies to prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from emergencies and their effects.

The four main functions:
Preparedness: Gathering materials and plans to withstand the onslaught of the significant episode, and emergency, or a disaster event. Mitigation: Any Activity which reduces or eliminates disaster damages or loss of life. Response: Actions taken during and immediately following a disaster. Recovery: The final phase of the emergency management cycle which include actions taken to rebuild damaged facilities or systems.

Overall Recommendations:
As a new faculty member, the major issue I see is that we house Emotionally Disturbed Students. These students can be violent to themselves and others around them. The school is set-up as octagon shape and the library is in the middle of the school with classes on the outer walls of the building. We have two classrooms for the ED Students that are on different sides of the building. One class is for lower class grades K-3rd grade and the other is 4th-5th grade. We have lock down restraining rooms for each class. The lower level students have their retraining room in the middle of the school next to the library. The safety issue is when there is crisis with an ED Students and they have to restrain the student while students are in the library to the restraining room. The noise from the ED Students in the lockdown can be observed during these violent actions of the ED Student are seen by the entire school in the hallways and library. The request for a restraining room is to build into their classroom for observations for the regular students and in the hallway and the use of library learning environment is disturbed. The Upper Grade ED Students have their own room and their restraining room is in their classroom. The issue is that these students bang on the walls and this disturbs classes that are adjacent to regular ED classrooms. The noise from the banging on the walls disrupts these classes with the constant banging on the wall. Not that we doing anything but move the adjustment classes to move to the gym to continue their school work. The last issues we have were called down as a principal has been called on about one of the upper class ED Student knocked out the wall of the restraining room. The next objective is to use ply board used vs. general sheetrock so this doesn’t happen again in the near future outburst. The request was but in for both classes to have these rooms developed in each of their rooms with ply board built in July but there is a backlog of maintenance support. This is for a smooth safe school so students can do their best without any disturbance throughout the entire day.
