Practice makes perfect 

We want our schools to be a safe and peaceful environment for children to learn. Everyone must know the plan and their role before an emergency.  

 

That is why we practice school safety and security training/drills throughout the school year. Kenston conducts mock drills for fires, natural disasters, lockdown and bus evacuations. These drills are conducted in conjunction with our local First Responders. The training is tailored for different age groups.  

 

Bus evacuation

On Wednesday, September 1, districtwide bus evacuation drills were conducted. Students practiced three types of evacuations drills: exiting the bus from the front, back of the buses, half exiting through the front door and half exits via the rear door and quickly moving to a place of safety 100 feet away from the bus.

 


Thank you, First Responders 

On Friday, August 20, during the Kenston vs. Chagrin Falls football pre-game, the Kenston Board of Education and the Chagrin Valley Chamber of Commerce recognized the First Responders who serve our communities.

 

They are members of the police force, sheriff’s department, fire companies and emergency services. They are the first people on the scene; whether it’s a fire, accident, or health emergency, they are the heroes that come to your rescue when you are in trouble.

 

Thank You First Responders!
