What can parent do before a disaster occurs?
Is you family prepared in the event of an emergency or natural disaster? Experts have found that children cope with traumatic events much better if they have some kind of emergency preparedness training. This kind of training also helps keep children calm and avoid injuries if a disaster does happen. With this in mind, the school district requires every school to have an emergency drill to practice appropriate responses.
Be sure that you child's health and emergency card (on file in the office) has accurate and up-to-date information. Make sure that you list emergency contacts on the card. The only people, other than you, that would be permitted to take your child from school are those that are listed on the emergency card. Inform the people that are listed that they are authorized to take your child in an emergency. Prepare your child. Let your child know who might be picking them up from school if you are unable to do so. If you work out of the local area, be sure that you child understand that it may take you many hours or days to reach home. Reassure your child that they will be cared for until you arrive. Thank you for your help in making sure that we are all prepared in the event of a real disaster.
