Silver Strand Safety & Security

Great California Shake Out: 10/18/2018 at 10:18 a.m.

On Thursday, October 18th at 10:18 a.m. our school, along with thousands of others, will participate in “The Great California Shake-Out” drill. This practice drill will give our students & staff an opportunity to practice how to protect themselves during an earthquake. In preparation, staff has taken appropriate measures within the past month to be sure classroom disaster supply bags are fully stocked and readily accessible. When the alarm sounds on Oct. 18th, teachers will give directions to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On,” an action that can save lives and reduce the risk of injury. After the drill, teachers may follow-up with their individual classrooms about earthquake safety. Please discuss your earthquake readiness plans at home as well.
