Be sure to designate multiple families and parents you trust that can care for your child. Many parents may have difficulty crossing the Bay and is highly recommended to add additional friends and family to care for your child.
Join the PTA emergency preparedness committee ( BePrepared@cragmont.org), and volunteer for drills. If your child has special dietary needs, provide their classroom teacher with nonperishables for the class emergency bag.

DONATE TO KEEP CRAGMONT SAFE
Between regional red flag wildfire warnings, electricity shut offs, and seismic activity, it’s essential that we get ready for the kinds of emergencies scientists say are inevitable.
Our school still needs essential items to help teachers and students stay safe in an emergency event. Currently, our teachers urgently need backpacks to keep “go-bag” items in so hands are free to help guide and comfort students, reusable water bottles for each classroom, and tents to create shade.
Take action today by purchasing and donating quality, long-lasting supplies from our Amazon Wishlist (http://amzn.to/376z5KD). Items will be shipped directly to school and stored securely, ready to be used if needed.
