Home Safety for at Home Learners

Emergencies happen.  Fire, Earthquake, Lockdown and other emergencies can happen at any time or place.  Just because a student is learning from a home environment doesn't mean they are free from dangers that could happen.  Emergency preparedness helps students and families prepare and act in ways which will give the best chances of survival during and emergency. 

Emergency Preparedness 

Students and families need to be prepared and know how to handle and respond to emergency situations.  Families should prepare and practice for the following:

Fire Drills- 6 times per year
Earthquake Drills- 3 times per year
Lockdown Drills- 2 times per year
Other emergency situations (determined by location e.g. forest fire, flooding etc.)
