Emergency Information

Emergency School Closure

There may be days when unexpected emergencies or inclement weather make it necessary to close school or delay the start of school. Information regarding school closures or delays is distributed in a variety of ways (i.e. local radio and television stations, auto-messenger system, school district E-News, school district website, etc.). If there is NO announcement, school will be held as usual. Please listen to the local radio and television stations for information about the Issaquah School District, or check the district website at www.issaquah.wednet.edu. In addition, you will receive an Emergency Transportation Bulletin in the fall, via mail, from the school district providing in-depth emergency school closure information.

Emergency Safety Procedures

Providing students with a safe environment is a primary concern at Briarwood. The staff is knowledgeable on procedures for fire drills, earthquake drills, lockdowns, and other situations that might require emergency action. We routinely practice to prepare for emergency situations. If you are on school grounds during an emergency drill, we ask that you fully participate in the drill and follow building procedures as directed by staff.
