Dear Bobcat Nation,
As noted in an earlier School Loop e-mail, our staff and students conducted a great evacuation drill last Wednesday (9/11). Within a time period of less than 15 minutes, over three hundred students were led by their Advisory teacher from their classroom to the athletic field, each student and staff member was accounted for, and students returned safely to their Advisory class. Great Job!
Please read the eBlast below for info on Friday's schedule, Cornell Notes, water donations, our SCHS School Dedication, and more.

Friday Sept 20 - 1:20 PM Dismissal Schedule
Students will be released at 1:20 p.m. this Friday, September 20. We look forward to seeing our students, staff, and parents downtown Carlsbad at the Lancer Day Parade!
Water Donations / Emergency Response Preparedness
Beyond conducting effectively run drills, the Sage Creek Leadership Team has outfitted each classroom with an Emergency Response Kit. The kits include some of the following items: ace wraps, cold packs, emergency blanket, first aid guide, gauze in various dimensions, gloves, scissors, tape, toilet paper, tweezers, and among other items, utility tape.
To complete our Emergency Kits, we are asking for 30 cases of bottled water. We are extremely thankful for the 20 cases of water that were donated by Trader Joe’s and have full confidence that we will receive the remaining 30 cases of water from our parent community.
* Please respond to this survey if you are able to donate at least one case of water. Our goal is to only ask for what we need and we will disable this survey once we have the needed cases of water.
