There's always a fire drill on a minimum day.
I was surprised to learn Tuesday was a minimum day. The kiddos would get out at 12:45 so the teachers could ready their rooms for back to school night.
When I checked in for the day, I asked about the fire drill. The secretary said there wasn't a fire drill.
No fire drill? On a minimum day? Really?
Okay, fine. But on my way to the classroom, I ran into another sub. He mentioned something about a fire drill.
I knew it! I called the secretary. She said she'd check.
As the students walked into period 1, one of them mentioned that there was a fire drill in ten minutes. I figured she knew what she was talking about. And she did. Ten minutes into class, the principal came over the PA to do his usual talk before the fire drill began.
At least this fire drill was mostly painless.
