Snow day activity…

Let’s not get our hopes up, but just in case…
An open ended inquiry challenge for students who brave the elements and make it to school:
Prompt:  A few schools in Halton have had fire alarms go off this winter on really really cold days. Imagine you’re the safety officer for the Halton District School Board.  Research and develop a safety protocol for schools to follow on days with dangerously cold temperatures when a fire alarm goes off  Convince the school board and the fire department that your plan is well thought out and will improve the safety of HDSB students.

Hints: Is it ever a good idea to get a coat rather than immediately evacuating? 
What nearby shelters could students be directed to? At what point do cold temperatures become dangerous?  Let the Googling begin…
