Our Mid-Month School Announcements

DECEMBER 17, 2014


On Monday, December 15, 2014 we conducted a successful Shelter in Place drill. In this exercise, we practice what our building response should be to a weather or outside airborne toxin emergency. Students and staff move to a secure location in the building to reduce any potential risk of injury. We are pleased to report that our drill went well. Students quickly and quietly followed their teachers’ lead to move to their designated locations.

In addition to monthly fire drills, we practice our response to various emergency situations throughout the school year. We aim to be as prepared as possible in hopes of keeping our Bridge Valley community safe in the event of any unforeseen emergency.

Monday’s tragedy in Montgomery County (and the unexpected concern it presented to our community on Tuesday) emphasizes the importance of school safety measures. In addition to regularly scheduled drills, Bridge Valley has a safety committee who meet monthly to analyze our response to potential emergency situations and review our effectiveness during safety drills. In addition, Mr. Cochran participates in regularly scheduled meetings with Chief Goldberg of the Warwick Township Police Department and principals of neighboring Central Bucks schools. Mrs. Horvath, our school nurse, is building liaison to our district safety committee, and shares the information she gathers at district meetings with the Bridge Valley safety committee.


The Bridge Valley orchestra, band, and choir delighted students and parents during two performances on Monday. A special thanks goes out to our strings director Mrs. Herrschaft, our band director Mr. Robinson, and our music teacher Mr. Gromball. These three teachers dedicated a great deal of time and effort to ensure the success of our holiday concert. Those who were in attendance will agree that the students put on a wonderful show, and we were very impressed by the talents of our Bridge Valley performers.
