The Great ShakeOut

This Thursday our school will participate in the national Great ShakeOut. Millions of people around the world will be practicing earthquake readiness by simulating their response to an earthquake. Students will drop, cover, and hold on during the simulated shaking. Afterwards, we evacuate the buildings and meet on the blacktop.

As a school we continuously practice and prepare for a natural disaster. At home, as a mother, disaster preparedness is often at the bottom of a long list of “to-dos”. We encourage families to take this opportunity to evaluate your own preparedness. The link below provides a variety of resources for families.
