On Wednesday morning, our bus riders took part in a routine bus evacuation drill. During the drill, bus drivers explained to students the procedure for exiting the bus in the event of an emergency. Students were then responsible for opening the emergency exit door in the rear of the bus, which sounds the alarm. Students were then assisted by their peers as they exited the bus safely. Students are instructed to sit on their bottoms and slide out of the back door. In a drill, students line up and return to the bus to retrieve their belongings. However, in a true emergency, they would gather in a safe area away from the bus.
We are happy to report that all of our bus riders were able to evacuate the bus quickly and safely!
