St. Philip School Safety Plan
ST. PHILIP SCHOOL SAFETY PLAN
ST. Philip School is
committed to the safety and security of its students, faculty, staff, and
visitors. The Department for Catholic
Schools, Diocese of Pittsburgh, has researched and prepared a customized All
Hazards Plan in conjunction with the
Commonwealth of PA Emergency Management
Every teacher is involved in
preparing the Safety Plan for SPS.
This plan covers all four
phases of an emergency: Prevention,
preparedness, response and recovery.
In preparation, at St. Philip
School, we are teaching the students different drills, like fire drill, lock
down and severe weather drill.
On Monday, October 21 we will
practice a lock down drill. An
announcement will be made and the classroom doors will be locked. Students will
move away from the classroom door and follow the teacher’s directions. The
learning in all of this is that the students know what to do and how to be
serious about the drills.
You will be informed as the
Safety Plan develops. Thank you for your

Re: Healthy Pennsylvania – Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
Governor Tom Corbett recently announced his Healthy Pennsylvania initiative in which a key part is to ensure that every child in Pennsylvania has health care.
Healthy Pennsylvania works to ensure that all Pennsylvania children have access to quality, affordable health care coverage that best meets their needs.
The plan also eliminates CHIP’s six month waiting period for eligible families in certain income ranges, allowing Pennsylvania children to have continued and timely access to CHIP coverage.
If parents contact you for information about CHIP or options available to them under Governor Corbett’s proposal, below are helpful links to information to share with families.
