All MSBSD Schools conduct safety drills several times throughout the year. The ALICE drill is our intruder drill. Students may come home talking about a wolf drill. Mrs. Evan’s, our librarian, reads a book called I'm not Scared, I'm prepared! by Julia Cook. In the book the intruder is a wolf. Here is a great introductory video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRTIpMft_u8
This drill is completed twice a year, at the beginning of each semester. Also each semester we conduct earthquake and bomb threat drills. We will complete these on Friday September 30, 2022. Monthly we conduct our fire drills.” If you have any questions please feel free to call the front office.
