One of those things we practice and hope we never have to use, a District Disaster Plan. Today we had put ours into action and the kids pulled through nicely. We had a chemical spill upwind from us today and had to evacuate to another location. We were fortunate in that the rain in the forecast today held off and kept the situation from being worse than a precautionary evacuation. The kids followed the plan like we practiced and although excited by the evacuation, kept their cool, followed directions and showed the news that middle schoolers can pull together. Huge thanks to Baker College for hosting the evacuation site!
