The School currently conducts emergency evacuation procedures as outlined in our Safety and Emergency Response Plan. In the event of a major incident, parents are requested not to telephone the School so that the lines can be used for emergency calls. We also ask that parents not drive to the campus until the authorities have determined that all roads and bridges are safe. The School will not release students, including those with their own transportation, until roads and bridges are determined to be safe. Students will only be released to parents or to contacts listed on the Emergency Card.
In the event of an emergency that would cause Marin Academy to close, the School’s automated phone system would be used to notify all School constituencies. Family emergency information can be updated through MyMA. Additional information and updates regarding school closures can be obtained by listening to the following radio stations or by visiting the Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) website:
· KGO 810 AM
· KCBS 740 AM
· KPIX 1550 AM or 95.7 FM

Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act
The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires the School to notify employees, building occupants, or their legal guardians regarding AHERA-related activities. The original Inspection Report and Management Plan is available for review at Marin Academy. As required by AHERA, re-inspections have been conducted at regular intervals; the most recent was completed in 2010.
