Fire Drills and Building Evacuation
Fire drills are compulsory. We are obligated to hold at least three in the fall and three in the spring, under a variety of conditions.
When an alarm sounds, you cannot be certain if it is a drill, a real fire or a different emergency in some parts of the school; therefore, for safety, you are to leave whatever you are doing and exit the building quickly and quietly.
Informing Students of Procedures and Regulations
Teachers are to ensure that students are aware of procedures and regulations in regard to fire drills and evacuations.
Procedures and evacuation routes should be posted in each classroom.
Responsibilities of Staff and Students
1. Staff shall advise all classes of evacuation routes and procedures, and ensure that these are posted in all rooms.
2. When the fire alarm sounds, staff members in charge of a class, at the time will, direct students to stop working and have them exit according to the evacuation route. As students are leaving the room, the teacher will take the class attendance sheet for a student count. The teacher will make certain that all windows and doors are shut. Doors should not be locked! Lights should be left on!
3. When the alarm sounds, the teacher must check to see if the evacuation route is safe. Once the teacher has decided upon a safe route, students evacuate the building while the teacher closes the door and follows the class.
4. When the students are outside the building in the designated area, the teacher will take attendance and remain with the class until re-entry is permitted. Any students not present for attendance are to be reported. A runner from each junior high and high school group will report attendance to the secretaries, who will be located across from the Bus entrance doors.
5. When an all clear is indicated with 3 bells, the teacher will accompany students back to the classroom for a resumption of instruction.
1. Students are not to pick up any possessions from lockers when leaving classrooms and the building.
2. Students will proceed as quickly and quietly as possible, without running or undue conversation.
3. When at the designated evacuation stations, students will assist in roll call. Students are to remain with their teacher at the station. Students are not to re-enter the building or leave the school grounds without the teacher’s consent.
4. Students re-enter the building as directed by the teacher.

Students may run to the gym/Industrial Arts/Drama/foods/modular classes within the first 20 seconds of the drill if in a hallway close to those areas. Students who miss safe rooms must either hide or exit the building if it is safe to do so.
