DSD Emergency Procedures

Delta School District staff would like to provide you and your family with some information on our District Emergency Procedures.

Over the past few years, most B.C. School Districts, in consultation with community and Provincial partners, have moved away from existing terms for emergency procedures and adopted language that is more universally accepted across North America (and globally) by first responders and Police.

In the event of an incident at your child’s school, this language is what will be used to communicate with staff, students, Delta Police (if required), and the public.

One of our goals is that by moving away from broad terminology like “code red” and “code yellow”, to more specific language, parents will have a better understanding of what is happening at your child’s school, in the event of an emergency.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with this information, as a preventative measure against confusion and unnecessary concern in the event of an incident.
