The third Thursday of every October is the Great ShakeOut! drill. As we are not in session that day, we practice on 10/25 at 10:25 AM. The students are notified to duck under an item that will provide protection and cover their head, while they hold onto the item to prevent it from moving. After the "earthquake" was over, we pretended the building was structurally unsafe and had students evacuate the school. All students and staff executed the plan like experts! Cascade Public Schools is one out of over 15.8 million buildings to participate in the Great ShakeOut! in the United States.
