WHAT: Students across Bassett Unified School District schools will “Drop, Cover, and Hold!” and follow safety drills as part of the annual Great ShakeOut, a statewide initiative that reminds Californians to be prepared in the event of an earthquake.

Leading up to the drill, administrators will reinforce earthquake drill procedures with students, including finding appropriate cover to prevent objects from injuring them, where to go for safety and where to find first aid kits in the classroom.
