Earthquake Kits

 For returning students please replenish all expired food items. 

New students please provide all recommended items for the first day of classes.

 

Experts advise that our area is due for another major earthquake and the best precaution is to be prepared, and at the Surrey Muslim School we would like to think we are.

 

The more kids (and grown-ups) understand the truth about earthquakes the less anxiety they may have. You and your family can cope best by preparing for disaster or emergency before it happens. Make sure your kids are aware that they may be separated from you for awhile, but you will come and get them when it is safe. To ease the anxiety of children during an emergency, it is recommended that you provide a small comfort kit.

 

We appreciate your assistance in supplying these critical items to ensure a measure of comfort to your child if an earthquake should occur. Through the cooperation and generosity of the parents of our students, we can be prepared to meet the needs of all.
