Emergency Procedures Drill

The OIS faculty and students exited the building in
a record 4 minutes and 57 seconds during
Tuesdays earthquake and fire drill. Everyone was
accounted for in under 6 minutes. The students
were quiet and had a serious attitude towards the
drill. We will hold another practice in the second
week in April. A Two Schools Together committee
is revising our emergency procedures manual and
will be finished by the end of the school year with
better defined responses in both English and
Japanese. In the photo to the right, the security
