Laguna Beach High School honored firefighters and police officers last Friday with an on-campus breakfast.
Students, teachers and administrators mingled with representatives from both departments while they enjoyed breakfast burritos from Johnny’s Pizza.
After Principal Don Austin thanked the departments, both fire and police officials spoke of the school’s unexpected thoughtfulness.
The fire department has worked since summer with the district in preparing a detailed action plan for fire scenarios.
District schools closed for two days during the recent wildfires; although the Santiago fire wasn’t near school sites, the district decided to close schools due to the red flag-level risk of fire.
