Active Shooter Drill Announcement

The safety and welfare of our students is our highest priority at Menger Elementary. We practice safety drills throughout the year to help our students know what to do in an emergency. Every school must conduct one fire drill once a month. In addition to the fire drills, schools must also conduct three other security drills throughout the year, which will be a lockdown, bomb threat, and an active shooter drill.

The goals of the training drills are to improve our ability to protect students, save lives, and reduce injuries. These practice drills allow us to evacuate our emergency operation plans and improve our response skills. The dates and times of drills will not be announced, but we will give parents a week’s notice in our Menger Bulletin when we are conducting our lockdown, active shooter, or bomb threat drill. Next week, we will be conducting our Active Shooter Drill.

If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to call the main office.
