Dear Millard Families & Friends,
School wide safety is always a top priority at Millard School. Each month we run evacuation drills to keep us prepared in the event of fire or any other emergency that might occur. This year our staff has continued to move forward in our preparedness. We hope to run an evacuation drill later this year and invite parents to join us to help us test out our system to see how it’s working. Watch for more information on that. We did this several years ago and learned a lot about how to tighten up our system.
We have designed a student pick-up system that is safe for all and requires parents/guardians and anyone else who is designated by families on the emergency release form to show ID as they check-in at our Emergency Release Station. This station will be located at the gate on Fiesta Dr. that is in front of the student lunch tables. Students will then be reunited with adults coming for them at our Reunion Station. Once reunited, families will exit the school through the gate on Valpey Park near our kindergarten yard. (Please refer to the attached map.)
Also attached to this newsletter is a parent letter that outlines our student release protocol. It is most important that you review this carefully and follow our guidelines. Then keep this information in a safe place at home. It is so important for us to be able to account for all students, even when we are faced with emergency situations.
Stop by the office with any questions or concerns that you may have once you have reviewed these materials. That will help us to close as many loopholes as possible.
Thanks in advance for your help and support in our endeavors.
