Earthquake Drill

Yesterday we had a successful school earthquake drill.  Each teacher reviewed with their class what to do in case of a real earthquake and then got to practice what it should look like.

Classroom: get under a desk and make sure your whole body is covered as much as possible. Hold onto the desk or table if possible. DO NOT stand in doorways the doors can pinch your fingers or swing and hit you. Stand in a corner of two stable walls. Do not stand by filing cabinets or anything that is unstable and could fall on you.

School: Find a place where things will not fall on you (pictures, basketball hoops, tv, etc..) find a place that is safe between two walls if possible. Stay away from windows.

Outside: Stand in the field, not near power lines, basketball hoops, or on the play equipment. 

Way to go Spanish Oaks for practicing school safety!
