Intruder Alert – This is a “hard Lock down”. Lock doors. Turn out lights and media devices. Relocate away from windows. BE SILENT. Do not draw attention to yourself. Do not answer the door. All instruction ceases.
Campus evacuations take place for a variety of reasons – severe threat, severe weather, hazardous material, etc.
RCHS uses two major evacuation points:
LeCroy (Building R) and the berms near the tree farm at the end of
Parking lots C and D. RCHS central communications will be based at both locations.
Students should proceed to the evacuation point closest to their classroom, unless otherwise directed.
** In the event of ice/snow and campus closing,
Crockett Hall at the Main RCHS office will be the location for students to relocate if they are unable to transport themselves from campus.
