The Mane Tail

Friday, December 16th, 2022


Dear Parents,

The safety and welfare of our students and staff are our highest priority. To provide schools an opportunity to practice emergency response procedures, our district Superintendent has asked all students and staff to participate in emergency preparedness drills on a continuous basis. The goals of the training drills are to improve our ability to protect students, save lives, and reduce injuries. They allow us to evaluate our emergency operations plan and improve our response skills. As part of the drill, the students and staff participate in the activation of our Campus Emergency Operations Plan. Your child will be participating in a practice drill on Friday, January 6th at Sampson. The drill practice will begin at approximately 1:40 p.m. and conclude around 1:50 p.m. This might be a good time to discuss your family’s home preparedness plan with your student(s). If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to call our school office at 281- 213-1600.
