I have emergency evacuation and disaster plans and procedures that I practice with your child/children on a regular basis. A display of the floor plan of my facility is posted. After the warning is over you will be notified about the location and safety of your child/children. (Emergency Information and Disaster Plan)
FIRE: We have two exits to our school. Our Fire Evacuation Plan is located in the entry to our school and denotes our Fire Drill Record. In the event of a fire or drill we follow our plan to our meeting place-- down our street to the east. Our fire safety policy is to have our children always wear slippers while indoors.
TORNADO: In case of a tornado we will move to the kitchen which sits in the middle of the building. Drills are practiced to ensure safe and calm movement to our shelter space.
BLIZZARD: If a winter storm warning is issued, parents will be notified. If your child normally arrives at my facility unaccompanied, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to get them there. Children will remain at my facility until it is safe to pick them up.
POWER OUTAGE: If we experience a power outage I maintain a battery operated radio for official instructions. I also keep flashlights in an easily accessible location.
