This month our staff has been working on Emergency Preparedness! We spent Staff Development Day reviewing staff responsibilities for emergencies such as Earthquakes, Fires, Evacuations and more.
This Tuesday, the San Francisco Fire Department came and helped us practice how to perform a fire drill. We evacuated the building calmly. Our students and staff were very cooperative and calm. The SFFD will continue to visit us monthly throughout the school year. This Thursday, we will have an earthquake drill. We are teaching the children to stop, drop, cover and hold. We are also showing them where the safe and dangerous places are during an earthquake. Families are encouraged to discuss these procedures at home.
