Kindergarten Students Learn About Fire Safety

Fire SafetyKindergarten students recently received a special visit from Firefighter Colby Whitmore from the Plymouth, MN Fire Department. Mr. Whitmore showed the students his firefighting gear and how it is used. He talked about the importance of knowing when to call 911 and had them practice how to “stay low and go” and “stop, drop, and roll” to stay safe around smoke and fire. The kindergarten students loved the visit from Firefighter Colby and learned great ways to practice fire safety! The North Woods kindergarten students remind you to check your smoke detectors and practice fire safety in your home too!

The school board is seeking input from school district residents to help in identifying the school district’s strengths and areas for improvement. School district residents can give the school board feedback by completing a survey.
