The South Side Area School District has adopted the following plan in the event of an incident occurring at the Shippingport Nuclear Power Station.
In the event an accident occurs while school is NOT in session, community members are to follow their own community plans.
In the event the school complex comes into the pathway of exposure and school is in session, students will be taken to designated shelter areas within the school. If a serious accident occurs while school is in session and it is ordered by the governor that schools be evacuated, students will be sent home, or if so ordered, students will be bused to Canon McMillan School District in Washington County.
Students will board buses (accompanied by teachers) bound for Canon McMillan Junior High School in the following order: Grades K-5, 6-8, 9-12. In order to minimize confusion and traffic congestion, parents are urged NOT to pick up their children at school. Parents are to proceed to Canon McMillan Junior High School, pick up their children, and be directed to a mass care center to await return to their homes in Beaver County.
