• Earthquake preparedness 

    All principals and assistant principals   |   Deadline: October 22

    All schools should register for the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill, which will take place districtwide on Thursday, October 22, at 10:15 a.m. Schools unable to participate on this date must conduct an earthquake drill prior to October 31. Please refer to Section 3 of your Critical Response and School Emergency Management Guide for guidance, in addition to this brochure for conducting a drill or evacuation exercise. There will be no siren or simulation from external sources for this earthquake drill.

    Schools should use routine processes for practicing drills and evacuations. If your school’s alarm is activated during a practice drill, school police must be notified. This drill will count toward one of the required six emergency drills (refer to the 2015-16 Drill and Evacuation Log sheet).
