School Emergency Shelters

The following is a list of buildings located within walking distance of each school that would be used to shelter students evacuated from their school. This list is subject to change, so listen carefully to instructions from Arlington Public Safety officials in the event of a school emergency. Parents and guardians are requested not to go to these shelters unless instructed. In most cases, students will be held at the shelter location until the end of the school day when they would be dismissed from school.
