Our Emergency Plan – I.C.E.

Montessori Centres cares deeply about the welfare of our students and staff.

In light of recent events, safety has become a necessary topic of discussion. Our hearts grieve for the families who have suffered such horrible loss at Sandy Hook Elementary. We shall keep them in our prayers.

Montessori Centres practices safety drills every month.

  • We are keeping the front door locked from 9:00am – 330 pm
  • We will have random drills throughout the school year..
  • In case of fire or intruders, we will evacuate the building through the opposite door of the danger.
  • We will show the children where our meeting spot is and how to get there.
  • In case of inclement weather, we will proceed to the basement until the danger is passed

Parents please read the Fred Rogers article linked to the left on this page. It is a wonderful article on helping children to cope with these traumatic events that we hear about in the news.
We can’t stress enough that parents should also have a meeting spot designated in emergency and that you have emergency drills at home as well.
