You may have noticed an increase in our safety drills during the 2017-2018 school year. It is our belief that repetition will help us to be better prepared. When students go through the drills repeatedly, the steps that they have to take become routine and they no longer have to think about what to do next. In a real emergency, that can make a huge difference! So, we have been running fire drills, Secure the Building (modified lock-downs), Lock-downs, and Bomb threat. Soon to come will be leveled lock-downs and miscellaneous drills including wildfire, chemical spill, and earthquake.
Also, at the District level there has been a Safety Committee established to look at District and school preparedness. They will be working with the schools to create procedures for various threats that our school and District might face.
