The Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District takes proactive measures to ensure the safety and security of students, staff, and visitors. The District's comprehensive safety program is designed to provide students, staff, and visitors with facilities that meet or exceed standards in fire safety, air quality, water quality, hazardous materials management, chemical safety, and building safety.
All HF-L schools have safety and security plans in place.
In any emergency, the District would follow direction from public safety officials.
Student safety is the first priority. With the community's outstanding highway and the District's facilities crews, HF-L seldom closes school due to the cold weather or snow. However, during the school year, it is a good idea to talk with members of your family about cold weather safety and to make sure you have a cold weather plan and a plan for any closure for the home.
Please make an emergency plan and teach it to your children, in case you are not home when the bus comes to pick them up in the morning. They need to know where, when, and how to get help if they are waiting outside too long, or if they sense danger. Tell your children how long they may wait outside, where to go in the event that the bus is delayed and what the dangers and risks of extreme weather are.
NYS requires that schools annually test their ability for emergency evacuation. On Thursday, October 14, 2021, you will receive an "emergency dismissal drill" call from the Superintendent. Do not be alarmed, this is a test of HF-L's systems and a reminder for all of us to have safety plans in place in case of an emergency. A ten-minute early dismissal is planned for students.
If you see something, say something.
