First Fire Drill of Year

Fire Drill – First of the Year

On September 7, 2017 at approximately 2:00 pm, we had our first fire drill of the year. It went perfectly!  I could tell that many of the classes have been practicing!   The students were completely out of the building in 2 minutes and 15 seconds flat, and ALL were accounted for within 2 minutes and 50 seconds.  I had two students monitor the event and then attend the debriefing meeting directly after to share their insight.  They commented how quietly the students exited, in straight lines, and with no talking or fooling.  They also noticed that students re-entered the building the say way after the All Clear signal was given.  Both remarked that our school is a very safe school…..I couldn’t agree more!  I am sending this out in hopes that you will engage your children in conversation about today's drill.  This way, you will have a firsthand account of what happened at 2 pm today.

Have a GREAT night,
JM
