    • Letter from Principal regarding Emergency Procedures September 12, 2014  Dear Parents I am writing to provide you with information about the Department of Education’s Emergency Readiness Initiatives that are in place in all NYC Public Schools.  Every school currently has procedures for emergencies.

In accordance with this, “schools need to conduct drills and other exercises to test components of the emergency response plan.” School staff members are trained in various procedures that are outlined in the School Safety Plan and we currently conduct a variety of drills ...
