Hello Kaiser Families:
It is rare that emergency services are called to campus, and any time they are, I inform families.
Today at AM recess a kinder student's knee got stuck in between bars in a play structure. Several adults supported, but even with a healthy coat of Vaseline, the knee would not budge. A call was made for help and there was a quick response from the Fire Department and a paramedic. The fire team was able to use a special tool to spread the bars, and the child's knee was free. While this was scary for the child, I am happy to say that she has no injury and was eager to get back to class.
I want appreciate all who helped out. Kindergarteners went back to classes, Gayle, Ms. Padilla, Elizabeth, Ms. Ostrom, Mrs. Klapperich, and Ms. Estrada and a parent volunteer all played important roles in a quick and calm response. The child's mom came quickly and handled a scary situation in a calm way. Thanks all! Thanks Oakland Fire Department!
The kindergartener was eager to get a picture with the responders and her mom OKed me sharing it with our community.
