The RWB is a large building and has several exits. It is important that the students familiarize themselves with the nearest exits in case of a fire or other emergency. The School will be conducting random fire drills over the next month to ensure that students become comfortable with these exit procedures. Although we will be conducting several drills it is impossible to ensure that all students will be present for them. Teachers will be reiterating to their classes where the nearest exit is and the appropriate rules to follow should a fire occur.
During these drills ALL students, parents and staff are to participate in the safety procedures. Staff will be providing direction throughout the building.
*Parents are NOT to remove their children from the class at the sound of the alarm, however may accompany their child’s class to the holding area. This is crucial to ensure that the teacher is aware of the whereabouts of all his/her students. In the event of an actual fire during inclement weather, the RWB Residence building is the holding area for students. Staff will direct students there, accordingly.
