During our Zoom meeting on October 16 we talked a bit about earthquakes and how to stay safe during one. This week at school we practiced an earthquake drill and watched a video about earthquakes because students had some really great questions about why we have earthquakes. Last week was also the BC Shake Out, which is a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about earthquakes and how to stay safe during and after one. At home you can point out safe places to take cover during an earthquake, and go through a drill at home to ensure your child knows how to stay safe at home during this type of emergency.
