After the count, everyone will proceed outside to the grass field, as we do during a Fire Drill. Once outside, we will set up our First Aid Station and Release Station. The Release Station is for coordinating the release of students to parents or guardians. In such an event, adults who are picking up students would check-in at the Release Station and sign-out the child that they are taking off of the school grounds.
The VSB has also implemented a radio communication process which will be used during this practice. Each school is equipped with a radio that can be used to communicate to the VSB Command Post with status information (i.e. injuries, structural damages, etc.) Schools are called one at a time to report their status. We must remain on the field until each school had completed their status reports. Once all schools have completed their status reports, students and staff may return to the building.
