That was my take on it also.
if it's an emergency- you just go!im curious if it's a regulation anywhere???thanks everyone for sharing
I agree, Laurie and Casey, an emergency is going to be difficult no matter what.My daughter was miserable when she was forced to keep her shoes on during nap in her daycare. I'm sure her teachers had their hands full enforcing this rule, her feet ran hot and she was having none of it.I faced the same issue as a teacher. I instituted a stop gap solution: in the hall, midway between the 2 exits, I placed a large handled basket. I put a copy of all our emergency forms, contact info, etc. in it and spare shoes for all the students. We invested in 2 sizes of cheap fake crocs: different colors to denote each size, pairs rubber banded together.This worked because a teacher needs to be tasked with grabbing the emergency forms anyway, so they could as well grab the basket. When we had an actual emergency, of course it was scary and difficult, and of course the students had to leave in their socks. However once we reached the meeting point, we were able to get them all into the temporary shoes and continue on to our shelter location a block away.
