SMUHSD Participates in the Great "ShakeOut"

At 10:16 a.m. on Thursday, October 16, 2014, millions of Californians -- including the staff and students of the SMUHSD -- will participate in the largest earthquake drill ever! (Please note that Capuchino High School in San Bruno will be conducting their drill on Friday, October 17th at 11:35am.) The purpose of the Great California ShakeOut is to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes, and to get prepared. You can participate too by practicing to "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" during an earthquake. Learn how to be part of this state-wide earthquake drill by clicking here. At all of our District schools, we'll be practicing our "drop, cover, and hold on" earthquake skills because there is no such thing as too much practice for an earthquake.
