As part of of our ongoing focus on student safety, our children practice emergency safety procedures regularly at school. Staff and students discuss what to do in the event of an emergency and what to do if the fire alarm goes off at school. Children know to walk quickly and calmly away from the school and line up in our back field with their teachers. This is something we practice at different times of the year at different times of the day so that all know what to do.
Recently, we had a fire drill over the lunch hour and the whole school was evacuated and safe in less than 2 minutes.
Our Kindergarten students also had a visit from our local fire department to further explain how to keep safe in an emergency. Families are encouraged to discuss an evacuation plan in the event of a home emergency as well. Does your family know what to do? Do they know where to meet if they have a fire emergency at home?
Thank you for keeping our WPS community safe!
