Home & School Meeting with ALICE School Safety Presentation

At Tuesday night's HSA meeting, Dr. Graf will share with parents information regarding the District's new safety protocol, ALICE. This will be the same presentation he provided for the students when he introduced them to ALICE during a Town Hall Meeting in November. The presentation is expected to last about 10 minutes after which Dr. Graf will answer parent questions.

We hope you'll join us for this opportunity to learn more about these important safety procedures. Babysitting will be provided for those attending the meeting.
