Our school’s Safety Committee has an emergency plan which we use in the event of a major disaster. Along with having regularly scheduled fire and earthquake drills, we are asking that each child have an emergency kit at school. The kit should be put into a one gallon Ziploc bag or similar container of approximately the same size.
Emergency Kits are due on Friday, September 5th.
Please remember that this is only a precautionary measure and your child’s safety is our concern.
Each student should have at least 2 personal emergency kits – 1 for inside the classroom (in case of a lockdown) and 1 to be kept in the emergency bin on the playground. The kits should fit into a one gallon Ziploc bag or similar container of approximately the same size. The classroom emergency kits should contain food or snacks for one day. The larger emergency kits should contain food for at least 3 days.
The large Emergency Kit should contain the following supplies:
