Soft Lockdown Drill

Please be advised we entered into a soft  lockdown DRILL today.

Please note the MAJOR difference this year in these drills is under normal circumstances, students move into a corner of the room where they cannot be seen from the window, however, due to Social Distancing guidelines, we are following all procedures EXCEPT students will remain at their desks to ensure safe distancing.

As per DOE requirements, we are to do 4 drills per year. I am happy to inform you that everything was very swift and everyone (staff and students) responded perfectly according to our protocol. Thank you to the staff and students.

Lockdown…(sheltering in)

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please be advised we went into a Lock-down this morning due to a fire in the apartment building across the street from our school. We entered into a lock-down to ensure everyone in our school remained safe and inside the school building. We kept windows closed as well and ensured the safety of our students during this time.

The FDNY has since put the fire out and contained the situation.

We have since lifted the lock down and are functioning as normal.

Soft Lock-down DRILL

As per NYCDOE, we are to perform 4 lock down drills per school year.

Today we held our second lock down drill where students are instructed to hide within their classrooms.

The drill was perfectly executed and students and staff followed protocols.
