  • We need your help in assuring that our Sharks are prepared for an emergency.  Each individual student needs to have a personal emergency kit that is stored here at school, in the child's classroom.   Our school requires disaster/emergency kits for all students.  This is an effective way to ensure that each child has food that he/she likes as well as items that would comfort him/her in an emergency situation.  Please find the list on our webpage!  (middle section)
