Kirbyville CISD understands that the safety of the students and staff on our campuses is the first priority in any situation. Due to the fact that an emergency can and may occur at any time, KCISD believes it is of the utmost importance to be prepared for any and all hazards that may affect our schools. An Emergency Operations Plan has been developed that will help to protect our most precious asset, our students and staff.
On this page parents can find helpful information in the event of an emergency occuring at one of the KCISD campuses. Please review each category below to learn how KCISD will protect your child in the event of an emergency.
In particular, please review the PARENT-STUDENT REUNIFICATION PLAN below for some important information that you will need to know to pick up your student in the event of an emergency campus evacuation.

Modified Lockdown: An immediate potential threat in the community

In either type of lockdown, the plan includes the following key points:

The purpose of this plan is to make certain in a crisis situation that all of our students are safe and are reunited with the proper parent/guardian. We understand that this can be a time consuming process during a stressful event and ask your patience with us. The safety of your child is the most important issue to us at this time.
