Safety FirstMalabon Safety Week October 15-19

This Monday, we will begin our annual safety week at Malabon. This is a topic that we focus on every day at Malabon in our discussions with students. When we ensure student safety and when students feel safe they will learn and grow academically. Part of being safe is practicing routines so that students and staff know exactly what to do in particular situations.  This involves fire drills, lock-down drills, and earthquake drills.  If you are in the building when one of these drills takes place, please plan to participate in the drill with students and staff.

When practicing fire drills, students are led by teachers to a designated space away from the building.  We account for all students through radio communication to specific staff members prior to ending the drill.  Students and staff are asked to walk quietly to and from their designated space, in case everyone needs to hear specific directions given to them.

An earthquake drill, practiced twice each year, has two parts to it.  The first part involves students practicing the “duck and cover” method in their classroom, meaning that they duck under their desks and cover their heads.  Once the “duck and cover” event has taken place, students and staff will exit the building as we do in a fire drill.

We practice “lock-down” drills in case a situation arises in which we are notified that student safety may be compromised (i.e, an unsafe visitor on campus or police notification regarding unsafe behavior in the neighborhood surrounding the school).  Staff will receive a command over the intercom system (“Staff, please secure your rooms, this is a lock down”).  Upon hearing this command, staff will lock all interior and exterior doors, close all blinds in the rooms, turn off lights and wait for further communication.  Students not in their classroom at the time of the command will be escorted by staff to the nearest enclosed classroom.  All exterior doors are locked at Malabon all day except for one of our front doors. In the case of a lockdown, a button is pushed in our front office to lock this door.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns at  or 541-461-6421.
