Emergency Procedures and Contacts

In the event of a natural disaster or large-scale emergency, Miami will use its Emergency Notification System to communicate emergency information. This may include texts, emails, VoIP phone messages, computer screen alerts, and more. Depending on the situation, emails could also be sent to the emergency contacts (parents, guardians) that students have specified.
