At the time of enrollment all parents are required to provide the school with a complete health record and important information useful in the event of an emergency. It is very important to keep these cards up-to-date with current address, phone and emergency contact numbers.
All our staff will be trained in first aid to care for minor bumps, scrapes or bruises. Should an emergency arise, parents will be notified immediately and 911 called if necessary. A first aid kit will be kept in every classroom and in the playground area but where it is inaccessible to children.
In each classroom and program area in our school will be a posted evacuation plan in the event of a fire or tornado. We will have regular recorded fire and tornado drills. Staff will have annual training on these emergency plans. In addition to fire and tornado, the school will also plan evacuation procedures in a catastrophic event such as damage to the structure of the school, power outage, bomb threats, chemical spills or other disasters.
The Director will always have access to a portable file where emergency contact information for all children is kept. Should an emergency arise and evacuation from the building is necessary, the Director or assigned staff member will be sure this portable file is top priority when vacating as well as a cellular phone. Once safely evacuated from the building, parents will be notified.
