Lock Down Drill Today

Today all students at VV practiced a lock down. It is important for students to know what the safety plan is in the event that there is something unsafe outside and we need to stay in. This is the same as making a plan if a child were to get lost at the store or Disneyland. They simply need to know what to do. We are not talking to students about recent school tragedies. We are making sure they understand in an emergency it is imperative that they are quiet and listen to the teacher for directions. The teachers are trained in and plan for what to do with the children in various scenarios. We want your children to always feel safe at school and know what to do in an emergency.
