School leaders and emergency responders are hoping to learn from a mock evacuation drill held Tuesday in Sioux Falls.
All fourth and fifth graders from Mark Twain Elementary emptied their classrooms, rode busses to a safe location and waited for parents to pick them up. The reunification exercise puts school district policy in action.
Classroom telephones ring at Mark Twain Elementary. In this drill, teachers learn their students need to evacuate an unsafe building.
