Lakeside Students Practice Bus Evacuation Drill | Schools
Students at Lakeside School District walked out of their schools this morning to prepare for the worst case scenario. They were transferred by bus to an off-site location in less than a hour. But it was only a drill.
Their Bus Evacuation Drill started at 9 a.m. and students were transferred to their undisclosed emergency location and returned back to school.
“As you might expect, student safety is our first priority and security is tight even during a practice,” Karyn Stockdale, district clerk, said.
It was later revealed they were bussed to Benewah Wellness Center as their acting evacuation shelter.
Judi Sharrett, Plummer Worley superintendent, says there were many compliments about student behavior while at the wellness center.
“I am pleased to report, due to preparation and attention to details, the buses were ready, all staff was organized and well-prepared, and our students followed directions,” Sharrett wrote.
