Health & Safety

At St. Mary of the Annunciation School, the health and safety of our students is our top priority.  Each day, our parents entrust us with the care of their children.  This great responsibility means that all of us--teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and students--strive to create an environment where every student feels safe, valued, and well taken care of.

Our students practice fire drills and other emergency drills regularly, so as to be well prepared in the case of an unexpected emergency.  Procedures for school and building security are constantly reviewed and evaluated, with changes made when necessary to respond to emergent challenges. Faculty and staff members are all trained in EpiPen administration and are encouraged to be active responders in the event of an emergency. Together with the work of our full-time nurse, we are in a position to be able to respond promptly and with great care when concerns arise.
