In dramatic fashion, students and District personnel will hone their emergency response skills by taking part in the Great California ShakeOut at 10:17 on Thursday, Oct. 17.  MUSD’s emergency response teams will respond to a scenario in which there is an earthquake and La Merced Elementary school students are in danger due to a nearby dam that was compromised by the disaster. Students will react to the danger, evacuate the school, and then be transported to Schurr High School where they will be “picked up by their parents.” Contact: Maritza Fairfield, 909-445-1001 (office) or 909-816-7722 (cell)
