Here is some information that you will need about tomorrow's Emergency Exercise at Fernwood dock: (email October 24)

-Fernwood Road will be closed all day, though there will still be access to our parking lot throughout the day

-The buses will be allowed to go through on their regular routes (but they are the only vehicles allowed through the intersection of Fernwood and North Beach)

-There may be a military helicopter landing in Fernwood field as part of the emergency exercise.... we will do a "shelter in place" drill, which means children won't go outside when the helicopter is landing and will only play in the back field at recess time.

-This Provincial exercise is designed to be realistic - there will be actors and make up designed to simulate a real emergency. For this reason, we are only allowing the grade 4/5 classes to view the proceedings, and any students who do not want to view it do not have to.
