Erie Day School has plans and procedures in place for severe weather, threats in school and on campus, as well as fire drills during the school year.

Safety Drills

Erie Day School takes special precautions to reduce the chances of fire or other emergencies. Student cooperation during safety drills with these precautions is both important and expected. Strong disciplinary action will be taken for the unauthorized use of fire alarms and extinguishers for students in Lower and Middle School. Safety drills, which are scheduled several times during the school year, are guided by research-based practices. Erie Day School faculty and staff have been trained by the Mercyhurst University Institute for Safety and the ALICE procedures. Visit

Safe 2 Say Something

Each year, Erie Day School Middle School students, faculty and staff are trained in this anonymous reporting system. This initiative, developed through The Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General, is designed to assist schools and law enforcement officials with receiving, assessing and responding to unsafe, harmful or dangerous activities. The program went live across the entire Commonwealth in January 2019, and is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Visit

Olweus Anti-Bullying and Harassment

Erie Day School faculty and staff have been trained in facilitating the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (2012, 2021). The Olweus Program is a comprehensive approach that includes schoolwide, classroom, individual, and community components. The program is focused on long-term change that creates a safe and positive school climate. It is designed and evaluated for use in elementary, middle, junior high and high schools (K-12). The program’s goals are to reduce and prevent bullying problems among school children and to improve peer relations at school. The program has been found to reduce bullying among students, improve the social climate of classrooms, and reduce related antisocial behaviors, such as vandalism and truancy. The Olweus Program has been implemented in more than a dozen countries around the world, and in thousands of schools in the United States. Visit https://olweus.sites.clemson.e...
