When demonstrations occur, the importance of listening before determining the course of action cannot be over-emphasized.
Advise Vice President for Operations and Facilities and Security immediately.
Remain calm, use good judgment.
Tell all students involved to return to their classes.
Attempt to keep students in their classrooms but do not use force. Keep halls clear of students while classes are in session (lock outside doors, panic bars).
Have garbage cans and wastepaper containers removed -- into locked rooms, if possible.
Keep hands off the students unless restraint is needed.
Report incident to supervisor and Security x5682.
Picketing by non-students must by state law be limited to an area off school grounds. If an administrator determines that students picketing on school property during school hours are a disturbance to the school, they should be told to leave or return to class.
Notify Vice President for Operations and Facilities and Security x5682.
An intruder is any person found on school premises who has not or will not register as a visitor according to State Regulation (RCW 28A.5B.101,110).
An intruder should be handled according to the following procedures:
Greet intruder in a polite and non-threatening manner. Inquire as to the purpose of his/her presence. If the person has no rightful reason to be on campus, notify Security x5682 with description of individual and location.
Exercise good judgment and reasonable action to guard against escalating the disturbance/demonstration.
Record observations of any incidents, including date, time, place and names and actions of those involved and any intervention attempts. Report to Security x5682.
Maintain normal class operations as much as possible.
If the disturbance/demonstration is outside the building, keep students away from windows and shades down in order to keep students as safe as possible.
