State law requires schools to conduct two lockdown drills
per year. Schools will be conducting a lockdown drill within the first two
weeks of the school year, and again within the first two weeks after winter
break. These drills will not be a simulation of a threat and are not intended
to scare students. We do want students to take the drills seriously so they are
familiar with lockdown routines and procedures.
If you have safety concerns, or notice any gaps in our
security, then please tell the school principal. As parents, you have a
valuable perspective that can help improve safety procedures. As gaps are
identified, we will continuously refine and improve our lockdown procedures.
