Preparations Underway for Our Carnival!

Lots to do for our annual carnival later this month! Please review the packet that was sent home and reach out to our PTO at pto@kes.k12.hi.us for ways you can help. We still need more donations for our White Elephant Sale. Gently used items may be dropped off at our office during normal business hours. Happy New Year!

Lockdown Drill

Today, our school conducted a lockdown drill at 1:00 p.m. This drill helps us practice how quickly we can secure our buildings and account for all of our students and staff in case of an emergency. This was an unannounced drill to test how quickly we can shelter our students in the nearest secured room and communicate attendance to the office. Our campus was secured in less than a minute. We were able to account for each student and adult shortly after that. In real life, for example, we might go into lockdown if there were an intruder on campus.

We do several unannounced drills throughout the year to practice how to calmly mobilize our student body for various scenarios. We do monthly fire drills, an annual lockdown, a shelter-in- place drill (either in the classroom or in the cafeteria), and a mass evacuation drill. In the near future, we will be having a mass evacuation drill, where we relocate to another site. For our school, our off-site location is Kahala Community Park. By having these regular, unannounced drills, our children and staff know what to do should a real emergency arise.
