Z. Cougar News/emergencykits.png


St. Angela Merici Parish School is taking the proper precautions to keep our students safe in the event of an emergency. A part of our safety plan includes having each student turn in an emergency kit: a one-gallon, plastic Ziploc bag that will be stored in our emergency shed and used in the event of a natural disaster. If there is an emergency and your child needed to stay at school for a prolonged period of time, this emergency kit would provide them with their own supply of food and water. 


For the list of food and other items to include in your emergency kit, visit the DOCUMENT section under the SCHOOL tab on the left hand side of your Sycamore page. Under the School Documents folder is where you will find more information.
