SAM Visits

Thanks to the Walla Walla Fire Department for sharing their "Safety Always Matters" (SAM) lessons with Blue Ridge students. We know to "get out, stay out" and to always take/show fire-starting devices to adults if we find them. Parents, please make a Fire Safety Plan with your family so that everyone knows safe routes out of your home and where the designated meeting place is outside your home in the event of a fire.
