Emergencies can arise at any time, and you should be prepared to handle them with a minimum of confusion. Procedures differ throughout the district, depending on whether you are serving at an elementary, middle school, or senior high school.
Upon arrival at the school, you should check with the administration or school nurse regarding emergency procedures and guidelines for handling situations involving student accidents, illnesses, etc. At various times throughout the year, fire and other emergency drills may be conducted. When such drills are conducted you should:
1. Remain calm.
2. Inform the students of the drill, while demanding their silence and cooperation.
3. Conduct your class to the evacuation point in an orderly manner.
4. Permit students to re-enter only upon the direction of the administration.
