Silver Tree has a well-developed policy and procedure for responding to a bush fire or bush fire threat. Parents need to be aware of the following aspects of that policy:
- If a Catastrophic Fire Weather Warning is declared we will pre-emptively close the school. This closure will be announced via text message and e-mail to current parents.
- In the unlikely, but serious event, that a fire is approaching our school and we do not have time to evacuate safely, we have a well prepared safe refuge that will be used. Please do not attempt to come to the school to collect your child unless you have been asked to do so by the school. Your children will be safer in a refuge than on the roads and the less traffic there is to get in the way of emergency services, the safer your children will be.
Please rest assured that the safety of your children is our first priority.
