Emergency Drills

We have been working hard to establish procedures and implement the safest possible practices at Mesnier Primary School. Student safety is our number one priority. In order to maintain a safe environment, it is necessary that we practice our emergency response plans by having drills designed to exercise our procedures. The students and staff will be practicing 4 primary emergency drills throughout the year. They are fire, tornado, earthquake and intruder drills. When we have a drill, classroom teachers review the procedures with students and emphasize the importance of following the directions of the adults in the school during the drill so we can be prepared. You can remind your child of this expectation when you talk to your child at home about emergency drills. Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our school community safe. Students did a great job during our fire and intruder drills last week. This week we will practice bus evacuations.
