As part of a nationwide drill, air raid sirens sounded at 10:05 AM all across Israel.
The purpose of the drill is to test and prepare the schools, teachers and students in case of a missile attack, such as from Iran, Gaza or the Palestinian Authority.
During the drill, students from nursery schools on up, went into bomb shelters.
At least some schools are testing out an Internet based “remote-learning” system, playing out scenarios where students or teachers are unable to physically make it to the school. As part of that test, classes are taught (or learned) remotely with one, some or all of the participants sitting at home. That part of the drill will take place at 3 PM this afternoon.
Parents were asked to talk to their children before going to school today, to prepare them so they wouldn’t be scared when the sirens went off.Shalom Bear
