Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten
SCHOOL SAFETY WEEK! This week will be focusing on school safety. We will be having a fire drill, a tornado drill , and a lock-down drill. We will talk about what a lock-down drill is and practice proper procedures prior to the actual drill. This will be done in a very sensitive way as not to frighten or scare the students. You may want to also address this at home to further prepare your children and answer any questions they may have.
