The Chico Unified School District takes proactive measures to protect
the safety of all our students and staff members. Chico Unified School
District representatives work in close collaboration with local, state,
and federal health, safety, and emergency personnel to develop and
maintain plans for coping with a variety of emergency response
situations. These agencies offer quick response, expertise and support
Chico Unified will post emergency alerts as quickly as possible. We encourage parents to check the website for up-to-date information or instructions.
Notifications for Code Red Lockdowns will be sent via School Messenger after the lockdown has been concluded. If you are not receiving messages from your school, then please contact the school's main office to ensure your contact information is correct. Updates also will be provided on the Chico Unified website.
If an incident occurs at a school, we ask that parents not go directly to the school.
Keeping clear access for emergency vehicles is essential - possibly a matter of life or death - and we depend upon your cooperation to help make this possible.
Please avoid calling your child's school during a crisis, since very likely the call cannot be answered. We need to keep the school phone lines open for emergency support contacts.
In times of emergency, a variety of local media will be used to provide information. Parents should tune into local major radio and television stations, call the district office at (530) 891-3000, ext. 911, visit our website for emergency updates, or our Facebook page (ChicoUSD).
Also, please be sure to give the school your current phone numbers and email addresses so messages can be sent directly to you regarding emergency situations.
