EMERGENCY OR DISASTER PARENT INFORMATION
Should an emergency or disaster situation ever arise in our area while school is in session, we want you to be aware that the schools have made preparations to respond effectively to such situations.
Should we have a major disaster during school hours, your student(s) will be cared for at this school. Kermit School District has a detailed emergency operations plan which has been formulated to respond to a major catastrophe.
Your cooperation is necessary in any emergency.
- Do Not telephone the school. Telephone lines may be needed for emergency communication.
- In the event of a serious emergency, students will be kept at their schools until they are picked-up by an identified, responsible adult who has been identified as such on the Kermit ISD Emergency Card, which is required to be filled out by parents/guardians at the beginning of every school year. Please be sure you consider the following criteria when you authorize another person to pick up your child at his/her campus:
a. He/she is 18 year of age or older.
b. He/she is usually home during the day.
c. He/she could walk to school, if necessary.
d. He/she is known to your child.
e. He/she is both aware and able to assume this responsibility.
3. Tune to the following for emergency announcements:
a. Emergency notification to parents via:
i. Kermit ISD Website –
ii. sCHOOL MESSENGER System – Kermit ISD (telephone auto-dialer)
iii. KPTX Radio (98 FM) – Channel 3
iv. KLBO Radio (1300 AM) – Monahans
v. La Ley Radio (Q108) – Odessa
4. Impress upon your children the need for them to follow the directions of any school personnel in times of an emergency.
Students will be released only to parents/guardian and persons identified on the Kermit School District Emergency Card. During an extreme emergency, students will be released at designated reunion gates located on school campuses. Parents should become familiar with the Kermit ISD School Emergency Disaster Plan and be patient and understanding with the student release process. Please instruct your student to remain at school until you or a designee arrives. Because local telephone service may be disrupted, also list and Out-Of-State contact on the emergency card, as calls may be made out of the area while incoming calls are affected.
