Parent Safety Meeting 8/27 6:30 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!

SCREENAGERS - GROWING UP IN THE DIGITAL AGE

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.

The showing will take place at HSE High School on September 17th at 6:00pm
