Emergency Preparedness

Over the last few years Walnut Grove Secondary has taken proactive steps to ensure that the school is prepared to handle a natural disaster. For example, last year we had a cargo bin delivered to the school to house emergency supplies. In the event of a natural disaster Walnut Grove Secondary will likely be the center of emergency response for the community. With 1800 students and hundreds more in the community we need to make sure that the bin has the required supplies to help students, staff and community residents displaced by an earthquake or other emergency. The Social Studies Department has volunteered to help fill the emergency bin by dividing up required supplies by grade level. Please help us prepare for an emergency by donating what you can based on your son/daughter’s grade.
