• Safety Drills

    Teachers will explain the proper procedures to follow to their students. When the fire alarm sounds, all areas are to be cleared. Students are to follow their staff and co-workers to the designated safety zone and stay with their group at all times. Students should move orderly, rapidly, quietly, and away from the building as quickly as possible. Emergency procedures are in place for each community site in the OPTIONS program. From time to time we will have other emergency preparedness drills that may be related to extreme weather conditions or other emergency situations.
