Maryville Elementary, Fearless Fire Drills

We are very happy to announce that we had our first two classes from the Fearless Fire Drills program complete the program. Thank you so much Mrs. Merritt and Mrs. Hemeon for helping us teach these wonderful students and instructing them to respond promptly and correctly when the fire alarm goes off! Great job students and teachers!

General Cooking Precautions

General Cooking Precautions
• Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking - frying, broiling or boiling -  at high temperatures.
• Make your cooking area safe. Move things that can burn away from the stove. Turn pot handles toward the back so they can’t be bumped.
• Watch what you’re cooking. Use a timer when roasting a turkey or baking.
• Be prepared. Keep a large pan lid or baking sheet handy in case you need to smother a pan fire.
• Stay awake and alert while you’re cooking. If you see smoke or the grease starts to boil in your pan, turn the burner off.
• Prevent burns. Wear short sleeves when you cook, or roll them up. Don’t lean over the burner. Use potholders and oven mitts to handle hot cookware.
