Any of the schools you went to had fire drill forms? One of my elementary schools had fire drill forms. Each fire drill the teacher would grab one of the forms and be required to fill it out during the drill.
I remember in elementary school, before all attendance was done electronically, the teacher would take their attendance sheet outside during a fire drill and take attendance outside.
After they switched to an all-electronic system, I don’t even know if they took anything outside. To be frank, I didn’t even pay attention.
My school has red and green cards that the teachers take outside during drills/alarms. If all students in their class are accounted for, the teacher holds up the green sign. If a student is missing… they still hold up the green card and tell everyone not to say anything to admin.
Elementary school: Then took out a spare attendance sheet they had by the door
Middle and high school didn’t even do attendance. I think by the time middle school rolled around, they figured that 6th and 7th graders (I went there for 7th, but there were also 6th grades) knew to evacuate in an orderly fashion.
My school also uses the green/red card system, but for all drills (fire drill, lockdown, tornado drill). In most classrooms, these are located on a clipboard near the door. There are also sheets in each classroom that give instructions on what to do during a fire drill or a lockdown.
Back when I was in school, in elementary the teachers would take the attendance sheet and do a roll call like when a substitute teacher was in, than report if everyone was present and accounted for. In middle the teachers would just do a head count and report, in high they didn’t bother as long as the school was empty when they’d do a sweep, but you would get in serious trouble if you didn’t return back to class afterwords (usually a one day suspension).
Going through elementary school, I vaguely remember each individual student being called for attendance during fire drills. By middle school and high school, it was more of mass count than individually. I never really paid attention to the forms and documents teachers held with them.
In my elementary school, each teacher had an “emergency folder” which was kept by the classroom door and they would always grab it on a fire drill. once outside, they would take attendance and if all was accounted for they would hold up a green card, if not they would hold up a red card.
Both elementary schools had drill forms. In Ohio, a student would run the form to the principal during a drill. Teachers took attendance in later grades, but there wasn’t a protocol.
At all of my schools (elementary through high school) , teachers are required keep their “red binder” on something next to the door. It has their rosters, gradebook, lesson plans, and other important papers/information inside of it. During a fire drill, the teachers grab them. Our schools usually have 3-5 administrators, so they will go to the meeting spots. The teachers will report whose missing to him/her.
I’m redoing this, it wouldn’t let me delete or edit my old one, so I’m making a new reply.

Our schools usually have 3-5 administrators, so they will go to the meeting spots. However, teachers usually don’t actually, call the attendance, the usually count the amount of students in their line. This is because my school district has a “bell to bell” learning policy in class and apparently calling attendance takes way from that “bell to bell” time. Most teachers count their attendance or have students sign in on their way into class. Teachers will report missing students to the administrator who is near their class’ meeting spot. Students who get separated from their class are encouraged to stand separately with the administrators, so they don’t mess up other teachers with their attendance during the drill.
My high school had a fire drill last Thursday.
