TUBA CITY-Students and staff members are the highest priority at Tuba City Unified School District (TCUSD).

This means not only their educational and emotional well-being, but their educational and physical concerns as well.

To address this priority issue of providing a safe and trusted learning environment, a new safety booklet was developed by TCUSD through its safety team officer, Reggie Curry, TC District Maintenance Supervisor and supporting safety team member, Rosanda Suetopka Thayer from the TCUSD Public Relations office. Other TC administrators assisted with the development of the safety booklet.

The new booklet contains nine separate sections of safety and disaster code areas including: Code Red-Fire, Code Blue-Medical Emergency, Code Green-Disaster, Code Black-Evacuation and Bomb Threat, Code Yellow-Police/Security Needed, Code Gray-Weather Related Emergencies, Code Pink-Child Abduction and the final section of Additional local community emergency information.

The booklet was formally approved by the TCUSD governing board during its regular October meeting.

Two special community and parent meetings to go over this nine-page booklet will be held on Dec. 19 and 20 at the Tuba City High School library from 6 - 7 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend; light refreshments will be served.

These public meetings will allow time for parents and community members to ask questions and get specific information regarding the safety and evacuation plans for each TC District school site, which includes TC High, TC Jr. High, Eagles' Nest Intermediate School, TC Primary, TC Alternative High, Gap-Tsiinabaas Habitiin School, Cameron-Dzil Libei Elementary School and support departments within the TC District's jurisdiction.
