School Emergency Preparedness Information
The Department of Safety and Security has planned and developed a school emergency preparedness training program for parents and guardians of St Mary's County Public School (SMCPS) students. The program is designed to provide parents and guardians information on school emergency preparedness, increase understanding of required school emergency drills, and specifically explain what they can do to help and assist during the mitigation of any school emergency. County-wide training sessions (open to the public) have been scheduled to take place in the Board meeting room (Central Office) on November 17, 2014 at 6:00 pm, January 14, 2014 at 6:00 pm, and March 3, 2015 at 6:00 pm.
To further communicate the availability of the training events, the Department of Safety and Security, in conjunction with Media Productions Coordinator and the Dr. James A Forrest Career and Technology Center, has developed a public service announcement (PSA) and school drill training video with additional information for parents and guardians. The PSA is designed to be shown at school sponsored events throughout the school year. A press release will be made the week before each of the county-wide training sessions. The PSA and drill training video are available for viewing via the SMCPS home page or through the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM1nT0fm9bY&list=PLkPoZgypF3AUBMndQffjPBg-Gu7aYCeKF
