In an emergency
Students need parents and staff to remain calm in stressful situations.
We will contact parents/guardians if students need to be picked up. We will not leave students unattended.
West Hurst Elementary contact information
Please be patient. Student safety is the top priority. We will answer phone calls or bring your child to the front office when we can do so safely.
All HEB ISD schools have response plans and resources in place for weather events, fire, accidents, intruders, and other threats to student safety. The plans are developed in line with up-to-date national best practices, are school-specific, and are made in collaboration with local fire and police departments. Students, teachers, staff, and administration practice emergency procedures multiple times throughout each school year. For more information, visit the HEB ISD Safety & Security webpage.
Note: In rare and extreme conditions, such as tornado activity near the school, the principal may temporarily deem it unsafe to remove students from shelter. When this happens, students will be allowed to leave with parents once the danger has passed.
