Your child may come home asking about your smoke detectors and talking about fires. Don’t be alarmed (no pun intended).
We had our first fire drill this morning. The teachers had prepared the children in circle time and they were able to go outside quietly and stay together until we counted all heads. Not one of them was unduly concerned about the exercise.
Practicing for emergency events is part of our Emergency Management Plan, so every month we will have either a fire drill, tornado drill or intruder drill. In the event of an emergency we want your children to be comfortable with and able to do whatever is safe without panicking; therefore the drills.
