    Deerfield Academy has a comprehensive emergency notification system that notifies the campus community of dangerous weather, hazardous material spills, and other active threats on campus. The notifications only apply to emergency situations or conditions that pose an immediate or imminent threat to the safety of the campus community or could significantly disrupt its activities.

    Emergency notification methods include: emergency text messaging (add your cell phone number to the list with our cell phone emergency notification form), outdoor sirens, emergency emails, and alerts on the Daily Bulletin.
