Earthquake Dispersal Drill – Thursday, May 23rd

On Thursday, May 23rd we will hold our final earthquake procedures practice. This drill will include all of the pieces we have practiced in previous drills. This next practice drill will also include the release of our students to their parent/guardian or designated adult. The practice drill will begin at about 1:45pm in the classroom, followed by the evacuation of the students to the field. If you are available to pick up your child(ren) we will begin releasing children at approximately 2:20pm. This release of children will be done in an orderly manner.

Please follow these procedures to pick up your child: Please do not enter the field area until we are ready to release children. We ask that you wait along the grassy area adjacent to the driveway (off of Hastings Street entrance). We will have staff in these areas to help direct you when we are ready to begin releasing students. The adult who is picking up the child(ren) will need to report to the alphabetic groups by student last name – A to E, F to K, L to M, N to T, & U to Z. PLEASE BRING YOUR IDENTIFICATION (eg. Driver’s Licence) as it will be checked. You will need to sign your child out there and then take your child’s name tag to the Administration Tent before leaving the area. Your child will have all of his/her belongings so that they can be dismissed from the field. Please leave the area promptly to help with the congestion on the field.

If you or the designated adult is not available to pick up your child at this time, we will gather all of the remaining students and bring them back to their classes to be dismissed at our usual time.
