Fire Safety

Students in Pre-K through 4th grade learned about fire safety on Wednesday during national fire safety week from Mr. Gilbert Mancilla, Glendale firefighter and public information officer and SSJ school board President.  Mrs. Escobar, grade 1 teacher, whose father and brother are firefighters dressed in Mr. Mancilla’s gear. Third and fourth grade students had a try-on with gear and realized how heavy it is.  Mr. Mancilla read several books to students and asked how many students have fire safety plans at home.  He advised practicing several times a year for fire evacuation with a special meeting place outside.  Be ready for your students to ask you to set up a plan at your house.  SSJ students know how to be safe. Just ask them and they can fill you in. Thank you, Mr. Mancilla and our our firefighters who work daily to keep us safe.
