We want you to know that the safety of our students is our primary concern. CRY-ROP has a Comprehensive Safety Plan in place. This plan contains specific guidelines on procedures to keep our schools safe in an emergency. We continually train our staff on safety measures and regularly conduct drills to practice emergency procedures. CRY-ROP is committed and prepared for a possible crisis. We understand that knowing what to do when faced with a crisis can be the difference between calm and chaos.
The following are some tips to help continue our safety preparation, as well as tips to assist with the emotion of such events:
