The October Great ShakeOut EarthQuake Drill

We have registered to participate in the "Great Shake Out Earth Quake Drill". This drill would normally happen in October on a day when we are on Fall Break. We have 2 weeks from that date to get our drill in. Please practice with your child, so that they will be prepared for the drill when it occurs. Thank you!!!
  1. Drop, Cover, and Hold On: Drop to the ground, take Cover under a table or desk, and Hold On to it as if a major earthquake were happening (stay down for at least 60 seconds). Practice now so you will immediately protect yourself during earthquakes!

  2. While still under the table, or wherever you are, look around and imagine what would happen in a major earthquake. What would fall on you or others? What would be damaged? What would life be like after? What will you do before the actual earthquake happens to reduce losses and quickly recover?

  3. Finally, practice what your community will do after the shaking stops.

  4. A great step for after your "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" drill is to practice how to communicate with family, friends, and co-workers. Texting first before making phone calls is highly recommended. Learn more from ShakeOut partner Safe America Foundation and their "Text First. Talk Second." campaign, including how to hold a texting drill.

Weather Alerts and Notifications/ Notifying the Office when your Child is Sick

  • As the weather starts to really get chilly and students are beginning to catch the flu bug, there are a few things that we need you to remember:
  • Please make sure that your child leaves the house appropriately dressed for the weather. We still go outside for recess even when it is pretty chilly outside.
  • Do not drop your children off at the front door prior to 7:30. The doors do not get unlocked until the assistant gets there at 7:30.
  • If the weather looks like it may be too treacherous for school, please check WNDU, WSBT, or FOX22 for closings or school delays. WROI and WXVI will also be informed of closings and delays. You may also check Culver Elementary's Facebook Page. www.facebook.com/culver.elementary.school (go to the link on this page and "like" our page).
  • If your child is absent please call Karen Sndyer at 574-842-3389 or email her at snyder@culver.k12.in.us.
  • Also remember if your child has a fever, they have to be 24 hours fever free before they come back to school. You never know when that fever may spike back up
