End of the Day Plan Changes
Fire Drill: Students and staff vacate the building in a safe and orderly manner using the exit that is closest to their location at the time of the drill. The actual alarm is very loud and the alarm unit includes a strobe light. Once outside, teachers account for all students. We conducted our first drill on Tuesday, September 14th.
Alert/Tornado Drill: Students and staff move to a location that has been determined to be safe, away from window areas. Students kneel on the floor, bending over covering their head. Once in position, teachers account for all students. In some cases, students and staff take shelter in their own classroom while others have a different designated location. There is a pre-recorded message played over the PA system that instructions everyone to take shelter. We conducted our first alert drill on Wednesday, September 15th.
Shelter in Place: The procedure is simple, staff and students remain in their classrooms to allow for clear hallways and classroom learning continues as usual. We do use this procedure throughout the year to ensure proper medical attention/support can be given if a student or staff member is in need. There is a pre-recorded message played over the PA that instructions everyone to “Shelter in Place”. We will conduct a Shelter in Place drill during the week of September 20th.
