In keeping with state regulations, and for the safety of the children and our staff, we will begin conducting fire drills and lockdown drills in October. The teachers will prepare the children before the fire drills and emphasize that this is just a practice in case anything would happen.
Lockdown drills are typically managed as just a fun activity. The children are gathered into one safe corner or other area of the classroom where they could not be seen through the door or outside windows. We do not explain the reason for the activity as this would be a difficult and frightening concept for the children.
If you have any questions about the drills, please feel free to contact Suzi in the office.
