Is anyone familiar with the law requireing an emergency plan? Our present school nurse is trying to help us get ready for kindergarden next year and is pretty informed about this. She contacted Spokane school district and got a copy of all their estensive information when we first started last year (pre-school). She thinks private schools are also required to have these. Our best and safest option will probably be a private school, but dh is concerned about the liability issues. So, I am trying to figure out what I can. I believe this law came about as a result of Nathan Walters' tragedy. Thank you so much for any info ...
