Parent Safety Meeting 8/27 7:00 p.m.

Hamilton Southeastern Schools has been implementing a strategy for lockdown procedures known as the A.L.I.C.E. plan. A.L.I.C.E. is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. Prior to the A.L.I.C.E. plan, lockdown procedures involved the staff locking their doors, moving the students to a part of the room where they could not be seen, and quietly remaining there until an "All Clear" announcement was given.


Before the first updated drill is performed, each grade level will be a part of a presentation by our School Resource Officer, Tracy Jones. During this presentation given over the next few weeks, she will use a common set of guidelines to address this topic and teach their class the A.L.I.C.E. plan in an age appropriate manner.


Parents, please plan to attend this information meeting given by our School Resource Officer. The meeting will be held at New Britton Elementary on August 27th at 6:30 p.m. Please enter the school through Door #2.


We look forward to seeing you there!
