Dear Parents & Guardians:
The safety and security of our students is of the utmost importance. We continuously review our policies and practices to ensure that recent research and data support the strategies we employ. The US Department of Education, International Association of Chiefs of Police, FEMA and the FBI all recommend having active plans that include decision making and options rather than Lockdowns, in the unlikely event of a school intruder.
The Benton-Carroll-Salem School District has adopted ALICE, a nationally recognized program. ALICE is a proactive approach to an active intruder event which empowers individuals to utilize human action. ALICE stands for:
Alert – Get the word out! Use clear, concise language to convey the type and location of the event.
Lockdown- Good starting point. We will continue to lockdown students in a secure area however, we will include barricading the area for additional security.
Inform- Communication keeps the intruder off balance and allows for good decision making.
Counter –Apply skills to distract, confuse and gain control.
Evacuate- As soon as it is safe to do so, evacuate.
To be clear, in NO WAY are we asking our students or staff to make any attempt to subdue an armed intruder outside of their secure area. Our goal is to provide them with options if faced with a serious situation or event. These options include escaping, barricading the door, and/or protecting oneself by any means necessary should an armed intruder enter the school.
Officer Welch, the District School Resource Officer, is a certified ALICE instructor; school district staff have been trained for many years on proper ALICE protocol. Throughout the school year, the school administration conducts several safety drills, one of these drills is ALICE.
While attending any extracurricular activities, it is good practice to know your surroundings and to know where your exits are. ALICE is the District procedure at all Benton-Carroll-Salem School functions.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Dr. Guy Parmigian Superintendent
Officer Loren Welch School Resource Officer

We welcomed Autumn by foil painting trees with fall colors. We did apple prints with red, yellow, and green paints. We also observed the parts of apples and made cinnamon applesauce from scratch!
We have been talking about our community, the neighborhoods that we live in, our school environment, and the people who share these areas with us. We enjoyed a visit from Ms. Chris from the Oak Harbor Library who read some books about apples. We also enjoyed a visit from Mr. Ryan Smith, our maintenance technician. He told us all about his job and how he takes care of our school building.
