      Aftercare Safety Processes

      • All Supervisors of the program are trained in CPR/AED First Aid & can administer prescribed medications to students with proper authorization.

        Supervisors and staff have monthly staff meetings in which to communicate and practice emergency situations: Fire Drills, Lockdown Drills, Tornado Drills and Code Black (Adults only, no students are involved with this drill). 

        The Supervisor of the program also monitors severe weather daily and is alerted if inclement weather is in the area by a weather radio in the front office and the Weather Bug app on their phones.​

        Fire Drills

        • These drills must occur every month and must be completed in under three minutes.
        • Evacuation Maps are posted in all classrooms and are also accessible on the counselors' tablets,
        • Groups practice primary and secondary evacuation routes during these drills.
        • Social distancing is enforced during these drills.

      • Each day in Aftercare, students partake in:

        • Outside activity (weather permitting)
