Faith Preschool - Policies & Procedures
If Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) closes due to inclement weather, Faith Preschool is also closed. If MCPS delays classes, the Preschool will be closed. We are open on MCPS scheduled half days or early release days. There will be an automated voice mail on the school’s answering machine letting you know if school is closed or delayed.
If inclement weather causes Faith Preschool to close more than one and one-half times the number of days that each class meets, a makeup schedule will be implemented. The makeup schedule will be at the discretion of the Director.
Please remember that these safety drills are done to help maintain our school as a safe place to learn and work.
The school will conduct a "fire drill" each month that school is in session. This is a Fire Code requirement as well as a licensing requirement. We want each student to understand and be aware of the importance of this drill and not be afraid when the fire alarm is sounded. By practicing, they will know what to do and how to do it.
The school will conduct one "Lockdown Drill" each semester of the school year. This type of drill will secure the school building and safely shelter all students, staff, and visitors inside the building. The purpose of this drill is to keep the students safe from any danger outside or inside the building.
During a lockdown drill all of the perimeter doors to the building and classroom doors will be locked and will remain locked until the danger or issue outside or inside the building is removed. To enable everyone to remain safe, no one will be allowed to enter the building or leave the building until the Director authorizes such a release.
The "Shelter-in-Place Drill" will be conducted one time a semester each school year. The purpose of this drill is to be prepared to move to a safe location within the building in case of severe weather or tornadoes.
