Our school district has been working very hard to update our school safety protocols. With the need to discuss school safety with students, we have been working toward becoming an ALICE school district. ALICE stands for, Alert, Lock down, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. We will be using the above story, "I'm not scared, I'm prepared!" by Julia Cook, to help us talk with our youngest elementary students about the possibility of an intruder within our schools and how to respond. We will also be practicing an ALICE drill to help students walk through the evacuation process, just like we do for fire and tornado drills.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns and we encourage all families to talk with your students about this necessary drill and information.
