As we announced via email yesterday, we held our campus-wide Emergency Drill
IMS will run an Emergency Drill tomorrow, Wednesday, January 16th and it will be campus-wide. It will test our emergency procedures as they relate to any type of menace on campus, such as extreme weather, a stray animal or an unknown person. The response to any of these is to move all students, staff and visitors to a safe area where they can take shelter. Thus, tomorrow we will drill two of our Emergency Plans, one immediately after the other: the Emergency Move Inside Plan and the Emergency Shelter-in-Place Plan.
As you may have noticed by the above description, the language IMS is using in our emergency plans has changed subtlety. While IMS diligently continues to adopt/review policies and plans to protect students, staff and visitors of our school from situations that might menace us, we have adopted more neutral and positive language in planning, preparing, describing and executing our emergency plans. We encourage the IMS community to embrace this philosophy and avoid using disturbing terminology or concepts with children who are too young to understand.
An optional part of the Admissions process is attending an Information Session, hosted by the Head of School, Dr. Kateri Carver-Akers. Attendees will learn about IMS and have the chance to ask questions.
Space is limited but we would love to have you, so please email; email@example.com or call 919-401-4343 to reserve a space. You can even come at 9:00am to do an Observation in one of the classrooms (a required part of the application process) prior to the info session, which is at 10:00am.
All Info Sessions are from 10:00am – 11:00am on the following dates:
January – Thursday the 31st
February – TBA
March (last session of the year) – TBA
