EvacuKids program seeks to expand in grade schools
EvacuKids program is made up of 6 one-hour modules on weather, climate and hurricane preparedness. They'd like to offer this curriculum this spring to 4 - 5 classrooms in grades 3 - 5. If you'd like to suggest a Title I school (or a school where at least 80% of students qualify for fee lunch) please contact Kali Roy at [email protected].
