Evacuation Drill!

In just over 10 minutes today we moved an entire school - 1450 folks, the "bomb" bucket, and the entire clinic to our off site evacuation area. Our neighbors at Chets Creek Church welcomed us with open arms and a treat to return to school with. It went exceptionally well and we now know exactly what parts of the plan should be tweaked. I was a proud principal today - the kids were perfect!!

Medically Trained and HERE to Assist!

This afternoon this crazy group all became certified in Infant, Child and Adult CPR and First Aid! To cover all the bases in a school our size means that 13 of us did the coursework, completed the skills demonstration and took a written test - and PASSED! I pray we NEVER have to use these skills but feel confident knowing that no matter the emergency there are folks on hand prepared and willing to respond at the Creek!
