Standard Reunification Method


Circumstances may occur at the school that require parents to pick up their students in a formalized, controlled release. This process is called a Reunification and may be necessary due to weather, a power outage, hazmat or if a crisis occurs at the school. The Standard Reunification Method is a protocol that makes this process more predictable and less chaotic for all involved. Because a reunification is not a typical end of school day event, a reunification may occur at a different location than the school a student attends. If this location is another school or other facility, then those students may be subject to a controlled release as well.


Parents may be notified in a number of ways. The school or district may use its phone or text message system.


If a parent or guardian is notified that a reunification is needed, there are some expectations that parents or guardians should know. First, bring identification. Proper identification, such as a driver’s license, ID card, military ID, etc. will streamline things during reunification. Second, be patient. Reunification is a process that protects both the safety of the student and provides for an accountable change of custody from the school to a recognized custodial parent or guardian.

Standard Response Protocol

When there is an issue on your child’s campus, Uvalde CISD uses the Standard Response Protocol developed by the Texas State School Safety Center to let parents, teachers, students and staff quickly understand what’s going on and how to respond.
