The week of October 8th is National Fire Prevention Week and schools do a wonderful job of practicing fire drills. When the drills are organized, staff know where the kids are and usually everything goes smoothly. The National Fire Protection Association’s slogan this year is “Every Second Counts” and the developers at Eleyo have made sure that in times of emergency, the Eleyo iPad Attendance App lets you know immediately where children are.
As children arrive for the day, site staff can check the children in with the Eleyo iPad Attendance App. Site staff can also accept drop-ins, view allergies for each child as well as view emergency contacts and authorized pick-ups. When a child is picked up, the parent or authorized pickup for that child will sign the child out through the iPad Attendance App. All of this information is instantaneously updated through wifi to the Eleyo cloud so that school-age child care administrators have immediate access to the most accurate attendance records.
As site staff move the children from one location to another, they can indicate within the iPad Attendance App where the students are going. In the event of an actual fire, child care administrators will be able to see where children are in the building at that exact moment. Because Eleyo is a cloud-based platform, administrators and staff can access the software when they need it most.
Fire drills are critical to staff and children knowing what to do in case of a fire. The NFPA (National Fire Prevention Association) provides fun activities for kids to do to learn more about fire safety and planning 2 ways out. Eleyo’s iPad Attendance App brings that piece of mind of knowing exactly where staff and children are at in times of emergency. Make the plans to get out and be in the know of where your staff and children are when you need it most.
