ALiCE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate)

Hello Ladd Parents & Guardians,


Our district adopted ALiCE safety response plan lesson will begin mid-October. Your student's teacher and school counselor will review ALiCE during a classroom lesson. The goal is to introduce ALiCE in a manner that children can understand without causing unnecessary fear. However, each child will respond to and process this information in their own way. Please be prepared to help answer questions at home, and especially to reassure your child that by being prepared, we are all more safe. Visit our ALiCE page to learn more.


If you would like to discuss this further or have additional concerns about your child and ALiCE, please notify Ladd School Counselor, Kristy Weaver at (907) 451-1700 x 37521.
