Please be advised we will be holding Building Response Team drills and Evacuation Drills throughout the year. The soft-lockdown drill will teach students and staff our General Response Protocol for evacuations and lock-down drills with careful provisions made during the COVID-19 pandemic with health and safety mandates.
During a Lock-Down Drill, students must follow teacher directions for a mock emergency in the building with adjustments aligned with COVID safety protocols. During the drill, Students will remain silent and in their seats (instead of moving to the safe corner). Teaching staff are trained to quickly retrieve any students in the hallway and lock their classroom door and wait for an ALL CLEAR announcement.
Evacuation Drills (formerly known as Fire Drills) will also be held throughout the year. As we evacuate, students are expected to follow all teacher guidance and remain socially distant.
These drills help students and staff become familiar with safety protocols so we are prepared in case of a real emergency situation. Please review lockdown procedures with your child. Thank you for your cooperation in advance to ensure a safe learning environment for all.
