DISASTER PREPAREDNESS At Deerfield
We are constantly concerned for the safety and welfare of each of our students. We hold regular drills to teach children the appropriate way to safely exit the building in the event of a fire, to “duck and cover” in the event of an earthquake, and to respond to our “Secure the School” drill.
In addition, many of our staff members are trained in First Aid and CPR. Our school staff is prepared to deal with a major emergency and to provide for the physical and emotional needs of students while they are under our supervision as well as their orderly and safe release.
To assist us in this effort, we require parents to do the following:
- Complete an Emergency Information Card and update it whenever there is a change in your contact information.
- Remember, in the event of a disaster, access to students will be carefully controlled so that we may account for every child.
- Students will be released ONLY to adults designated on their emergency data. A driver’s license will be required for proof of identity.
- All adults must check in at the designated student-release area to pick up and sign out students.
