Feedback on Safety Drill and Upcoming Tornado Drill

Thanks to all of you for your support and great job on the drill on Tuesday morning. Tom Kubisch, Dave Mand, and Shawn Hendrix had a lot of compliments for how smooth things had gone. Some things we learned :

*One class was out on the playground, and did a good job, of not reentering the building, as the drill scenario was in the office entry.

*There are two areas that locks need to be adjusted.

*We had one student that was in the gym alone, and she was taken to the next room available.

* Many classes were able to barricade doors.

As a District we will continue to practice lock down drills as well as fire drills.

Our statewide Tornado Drill is coming up next week on April 14th at 1;45 PM. Please practice for this drill with your students too. The information regarding tornadoes has been given to all of you.

Suicide Prevention Protocol

Thanks to Liz Flaherty for discussing the suicide protocol for the North Fond du Lac School District with us at our staff meetings. Copies of the protocol will be put in the mailboxes for everyone else to read, as this information is important for everyone to know. Thanks to Liz and the counselors for putting this together for our District.
