Hello I am new to this so bear with me, My children go to public school in Henrico,Va. There was a letter sent home saying they are taking collections
of Buckets,T.P.,kittie litter, Bucket must have lid so it can be used as toilet too, and water. My son sais they are in every classroom. Is anyone
else out there going through this same situation???? I am a little freaked out, The public schools are run by the government!!!
Thank-you, I am a worry wart when it comes to my little ones. My fourth and first grader know how to read ,so they read the pamphlet about the
collection of items and they were a bit scared. They watch those darn prepper shows on nat geo .I told them the lockdown excuse,and not to worry. I am
just a bit worried I am going to call the school and get some answers.
makes me wonder... I am from the UK and my daughters primary school have asked for donations of dried/tinned food etc..to
send to the army overseas. I just found it strange that a school in America is asking pupils for these donations at the same time as the UK schools
are asking for the exact same thing. I wonder if schools in other countries are doing the same?..
A few years ago my son had to put together a "kit" that had some snacks, various other things I cannot recall, contact info and a picture of the
family to "soothe him" incase of an eartquake or other disaster
I'm with you.. thats a weird one... here in kansas we're asked to donate canned food for the needy and such but if they sent home a letter to
collect supplies for pooping in a bucket I too would be a little.. eh? When schools are locked down it means no one in or out not no one to the
bathroom. I dunno.. it's odd.
Do they attend the middle school that is designated as the county's emergency shelter in the event of a disaster? There is information on a FEMA
grant on the Henrico County website at the recent meetings. It won't let me link directly to any of the particular school board meeting agendas, but
you can browse them here.
Schools where I live are required to have a three day supply of food and water in case of a disaster. To meet this requirement, each year we send in
three days worth of non-perishable foods which is returned to us at the end of the school year unused. This is probably some similar activity at your

That seems a bit bizarre! Mine aren't in public school, so I haven't heard of any incidents like this, but those seem like very odd requests. I
would recommend calling the school, and asking exactly what this stuff is for. Something in writing would be good, too. If the explanation doesn't
sound right, well, not sure what to do then. Definitely weird, though!
