Stanley notifies parents via text message in an emergency. We keep in touch with the community and follow up an incident or drill via email. For support:
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
- In the case of a lockout, Stanley’s Emergency Response Team or representative decides the level of communication necessary. If the lockout happens near dismissal, arrival or transition time, the school will send a text to families. All lockouts will be followed by an email to share details with the school community.
- For a lockdown, the Stanley emergency team or representative will send or set in motion the text communications and/or stanleybps.org website posts to keep the community well-informed of the emergency.
Stanley partners with Blackboard, a company widely used by independent schools, to maintain ready contact lists to easily communicate with staff and families via email and one-way texts. In addition, during an emergency – and also for ease of communication – all staff members are part of group chats that can be initiated by anyone experiencing an emergency or needing to convey information quickly among team members. These groups are maintained by our Emergency Response Team.
