Write Start Learning Center employs many features to ensure your child’s safety at all times. We have closed circuit security cameras installed around the entire campus that provide video surveillance of activates on campus.
We also have key coded doors at all main entrances and all doors throughout the buildings.
Weather is also a factor, especially here in Florida. To this end, we make sure that fire drills are performed school wide monthly. Students are also trained in lock-down, tornado preparedness, with duck and cover drills integrated into their playtime. Also, all infant rooms are equipped with emergency cribs, that are on wheels, and can be rolled out in under a minute. All staff receives ongoing training in such procedures.
In the event that we have to evacuate the campus, we have a two prearranged relocation sites. For a complete list of our evacuation policies, please click the button below for a downloadable PDF.
If the Pinellas County Schools close BEFORE a Hurricane to prepare, Write Start Learning Center will be CLOSED. During the storm, if it falls on a weekday(s), we will be CLOSED. It is highly likely that we will need a day after the storm has passed to clean up and make sure the buildings are safe. Please be aware that Write Start must have electrical power to open.
We realize that each hurricane/natural disaster comes with its own unique set of circumstances, and we will do our best to keep you informed. We will post our opening on the Bay News 9 Website, under “business openings and closings” located on the home page. Bay News 9 also supplies up to date information about location and severity of the storm.
