Lockdown Drill on September 9

On September 9th, we will practice an emergency lockdown drill with our school resource officer present. We are required to practice this drill each year within the first month of school. Our teachers do a wonderful job talking with students about the drill so that no one is afraid and necessary procedures are followed to keep everyone safe.
