We will be joining many schools throughout our province in “The Great Shakeout” Earthquake preparedness drill this morning at approximately 10:00am. We will simulate an earthquake and students will practice a “duck and cover” procedure in the learning space at the time of the drill (students may not necessarily be in their classrooms), followed by an evacuation of the building to the lower field (if it is raining too heavily we will only practice the inside portion of the drill and not evacuate the building). Students will then return to classes.
Stormy weather that will include strong winds and heavy rainfall is expected over the next several days.
As we enter the fall and winter storm season, please take the time to review how to learn if your child’s school might be closed for the day. This could happen due to damage, power outages or another circumstance that would make it impossible to operate safely.
Information about a specific school or district-wide closures will be shared with Metro Vancouver radio stations and posted on the front page of the Burnaby School District website www.sd41.bc.ca . The information will also be tweeted out, so follow us on Twitter @burnabyschools
