Medical Emergency Procedures:

·         In case of a natural disaster, such as an earthquake, fires, building destruction or other, all classes are expected to leave the school buildings and to gather in the playground in accordance to the Student Safety and Emergency Evacuation Plan. 

The teacher is responsible for evacuating the class when hearing the emergency bell. He / She has to make sure that all students have left the class in a line and gone to the gathering point where they will find help from other members of staff.

The safety of the students is the direct responsibility of the teacher in class or on duty.

students or staff. First adult on the scene is responsible to ensure American Section Administration is immediately notified and that form is completed.
