Disasters can leave children feeling frightened, confused, and insecure.
The best way to help your students feel safe about disasters is to educate them. Make sure they understand that they are an important part of your school’s emergency plan.
Take advantage of the many resources available to help you prepare your class for any disaster. Work with young students to educate them about potential dangers and how to be prepared. Consider including weekly or monthly disaster education in your lesson plans. You are a principal part of their daily lives, so help them be ready for anything.
