Emergency Management is an integral part of our educational responsibilities and school day. "The Fire Drill" is a key component of our emergency evacuation plan. Your children continue to respond appropriately during our practice drills, and are able to exit the building in fewer that 1-2 minutes.
In the event of a long-term evacuation from the building, Mt. Hebron Middle School, located at 173 Bellevue Avenue in Upper Montclair, is our designated district site. We also have a reciprocal, neighborly arrangement with the Montclair Kimberly Middle School campus, located at 201 Valley Road, that serves as an alternative site to the district one. (MKA also happens to be a closer walk.)
Of course it is our fervent hope that we will never have to exercise our emergency plans beyond that of practice.
