Teacher Notes
It is always wise to be prepared in case of an emergency in your school. You should prepare an emergency kit with first aid supplies, water, whistle, class roster and emergency numbers, blankets, battery operated radio with batteries, etc. The following links will help give you an idea of what to include in the kit.

Remember power might be out and you need to have hard copies of rosters, etc or back-up if your tech devices do not operate.
