Pembroke Lakes Elementary meets with fire and police representatives to conduct drills to prepare for emergency situations.
We will conduct at least 20 drills a year. Classrooms have primary and secondary routes for an exit. Drills happen at different times of the day and this year will include scenarios in which a typical route might be blocked. Hopefully, parents are also practicing drills at home. Every home needs an escape route and a meeting place.
The school's Safe Team consists of the Principal, Assistant Principals, Guidance Counselor, Reading Coach, ESE Specialist, Office Staff, and School Resource Officer. We meet regularly to review scheduled or unscheduled drills and discuss procedures. All Safe Team members have received special training on Emergency Preparedness.
