On Friday our staff held very specific safety scenario discussions with the kids at school. Teachers were able to customize the conversation to the students to ensure that it was age appropriate. They reviewed what we would do during different emergency situations and had student input during the conversation. Safety is an important topic that we stress to keep current and applicable to the grade level of the children. We did stress to the children that these are drills that we practice throughout the year. Please ask your child about this conversation.
As an important home follow-up, it is important for you to review rally points at your house. Where would the entire family meet if you had to evacuate for a fire? Another important safety conversation is how to access the house if they arrive home before you. Also identifying safe neighbors to assist if there is ever an emergency.
