Safety Information


Lisle District 202 is committed to maintaining safe learning environments for our students and staff. To accomplish this, our schools implement a variety of safety procedures, drills, and emergency protocols.

Lisle 202 staff is trained annually on our crisis prevention and response plan, which was developed in coordination with our local police and fire departments. We also review the plans regularly with the fire and police departments that serve our schools to ensure our learning community’s safety and, once the drill is complete, reflect as a staff and emergency responders to determine if there are any procedures we might need to review with the staff and students.

We believe that we are all safer when we work together and know what to expect, as much as possible. We invite you to review the information below to better understand some of the ways in which we prepare for emergency situations.


Safety Terminology

Our schools use standardized terminology to assist students and staff in understanding what situation is occurring. In all cases, students are accounted for through an attendance check. Please learn more about what each of our standard terms mean in the sections on the right.


In the Event of a Major Incident:

School district and law enforcement officials will immediately assess the situation and determine if the threat is valid. 

  • If the threat is deemed to be not valid, students will resume the school day.
  • If a threat is identified as valid, administrators and law enforcement will determine if evacuation is the best and safest course of action.
  • If students are evacuated from the building, we will notify you of the location and protocols for reunification. 

Please do not go to your child’s school. It is critical that first responders are able to do their job effectively for the safety of our learning community. Additional individuals on the site may compromise their ability to do their job as well as create a dangerous situation for you and others.


We know that having information is essential for parents/guardians. In the event of an emergency:

  • The District will first inform you that an incident has occurred as soon as possible via email, text, and phone. 
  • Updates will be sent frequently.
  • We ask that you continue the practice of not sharing false information on social media. We will communicate factual information with you as often as the situation allows.
