Drills For Emergencies And Disasters

If an emergency situation develops, such as severe weather, fire, physical problems with the building, or power failure, the children’s safety is our first concern. The school is equipped with a fire alarm system, fire extinguishers in each room, and a weather alert radio.

Parents will be contacted in the event of weather-related incidents or school closings due to unsafe conditions such as fire, flood, or act of nature that causes damage to the school. If such an emergency develops that requires children and staff to be relocated away from the school, the children will be escorted to Tom Thumb at 522 Preston Royal Center, Dallas 75230. Park Cities Day School will contact Dallas Fire & Police to let them know the situation.

If any of these occur and first aid is administered, a “Boo-Boo Report” will be completed. This report will state the nature of the injury, the cause, and the treatment, and the teacher who completed the report will sign it.

Playground Safety

A safe, age-appropriate outdoor environment is provided for our children. The following rules are enforced for indoor and outdoor play areas:

  • When a class has outdoor time, all children must stay with their class.
  • Teachers will supervise the children on the playground at all times.
  • In case of an accident, one teacher may bring a child in for first aid.
  • At no time will the class be left on the playground without supervision.
  • The director and the teachers will inspect the playground daily and report any unsafe conditions immediately.

Outdoor Safety

All children go outside every day, weather permitting, and our staff promotes sun and insect safety. All children should have hats to wear outdoors, as well as sunscreen in warmer weather. Insect repellent must also be provided for your child to protect against mosquito-borne viruses.
