This afternoon, we conducted a safety drill following our ALICE protocol. Staff and students reacted to a scenario by determining the appropriate action to take based upon their location and the location of the intruder.
We are proud of our students and staff for practicing this necessary drill, for holding important safety discussions, and for understanding the important role they all play in keeping our school community safe and secure.
Following the drill, we gathered as a school community in the gym, and met with Detective Pavao, Officer Holmes, and Detective Nikoletti. The police officers were very happy with what they observed and commended the students and staff for their immediate and safe action. They also complimented our kindergartners for how quickly and quietly they exited the building.
All in all, this practice of our safety protocol went well, and we all utilized it as an important learning experience. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
