Emergency Safety Plan

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.

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.
