Thank you to all the over 50 parents that came out to our September Family Safety & Preparedness PTA General Meeting at 8:30am September 26, 2017. They were able to meet our local Beverly Hills Police Department school liaison officer (SLO) Officer Stephanie Frias and Detective Ubaldo Mendoza, Beverly Hills Fire Department Inspector Alvin Cuna, Beverly Hills CPR Les Bronte, to learn about the importance of Family Safety & Preparedness.
These experts had much to say on safety and readiness regarding natural disasters and all types of emergencies. There was a lot of info and they took time to answer many of our questions. We thank these brave individuals for their time and dedication to keep our school and city safe.
Our very own, Mr. Foldvary also presented a thorough and well thought through plan on Horace Mann’s School Safety and plan of action for various emergency scenarios. It is comforting to know our children are in safe hands at school. Link to the full details of this plan is found below.
If you were not able to attend this meeting, please make sure you don’t miss next month’s meeting at 6:30pm Thursday, October 26, 2017.
