Monthly Fire Drills

The monthly fire drills will be random. The team will no longer announce fire drills to ensure we are practicing what needs to happen in the event of a real emergency.

Please remember the following during each drill...
  • Please make sure you instruct all of you classes on the procedures and etiquette for fire drills.

  • Please remember to lead your class out of the room for the fire drill. Once the

    alarm sounds, give quick and concise instructions, name a student to close the door and lead students to the field.

  • Upon re-entry of the building, instruct students to go directly to the class of origin regardless of time and change of periods (attendance should be taken when the entire class has returned to the classroom). In the event of a period change during a drill or an actual emergency, the administrative team will release students via the PA to their next class.

  • Attendance must be taken before, during and after drills and/or emergency situations to ensure all students whereabouts and safety.

We are ONE and as ONE we work together!
