Safety Drill

Lockdown Drill This Week

This week, we will conduct our second lockdown drill of the year. For safety reasons, we cannot provide the specific date and time of the drill.

As you know, safety procedures have been reviewed with students and staff this year. Students are aware that when the lockdown is initiated, they must evaluate the situation and either run away from the building, hide, or survive.

It is important for every member of our school community to know they have the authority to call for a lockdown if they see a serious threat. Anyone with awareness of an imminent threat should also call 911 if possible.

Immediately following the initiation of any drill, our website will reflect a notice that we are practicing a lockdown and that it is only a drill. We realize that even the mention of the phrase “school lockdown” is alarming, but we hope you will find the knowledge that we practice our response to crises to be reassuring.

Please take this opportunity to remind your student to immediately report anything that concerns the safety of our students to an administrator or the school resource officer. If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact your student's administrator.
