Emergency Procedures

Emergency Notification System

In the event of an emergency at any of the Lawton Public Schools locations, emergency protocols will be enacted immediately. During this time phone lines will be busy at the school. We ask that you refer to this page and notifications from the district on what is going on.

Announcements of any kind will be made using traditional and social media resources for that school. The Lawton Public Schools notification system will be utilized as the first point of information and other broadcast outlets (radio and television) will be notified when needed.

In an emergency event, students may be required to remain in buildings, delay dismissal, or evacuate to another safe location. The Central Office will notify school administrators when the “all clear” signal is given and students are dismissed for the day.

The district will use the mass email and text system to notify families. To ensure you are getting the latest alerts check with your school to confirm all of your contact information is up to date.
