Re-Unification Reminder

USD327 reminds parents/guardians and patrons that there will be a student/parent re-unification drill on Friday afternoon that will start at approximately 2 pm for the Ellsworth Schools and approximately 2:30 PM for KMS.   

Remember that district students and staff will practice a building evacuation to start the re-unification drill.  Parents/guardians who wish to participate and pick up their students at a secondary location can learn how this process works.   

Below are important items for you to be aware of if you choose to pick up your student:

  • It is voluntary for you as a parent/guardian to come to the secondary location which will be announced later today as the drill proceeds. 
  • The drill will start for students and staff this afternoon, Friday, October 25th, at approximately 2:00 PM for EES and EJSH and at approximately 2:30 PM for KMS. 
  • Parents/guardians will be informed of the drill’s progress through the USD327 app, Facebook, and the Live Feed on the district website. 
  • Notifications will be pushed out to the USD327 app.
  • The app can be downloaded from the App Store or Play Store on your device by searching “USD327”.  
  • These notifications will be used to provide necessary information on where and when students can be picked up and reunified with parents/guardians. 
  • We will also test a new texting alert procedure through contacts established in our Infinite Campus student information system.
  • The district is estimating a pick up time of 2:40 PM or so for the Ellsworth Schools and 3:00 PM for KMS.
  • You must have an ID ready to show school staff when you pick up your child
  • Students can ONLY be picked up by their parents or legal guardians during this drill. 
  • If you choose not to participate in the drill, your student(s) will be dismissed at the regular time from their school.  Buses will be running their regular routes at their regular times.
