Soft Lockdown Drill in February

BRT Drill February 2018

January 23, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Please be advised we will be holding a Building Response Team drill during the month of February 2018.  Our third soft-lockdown drill will be unannounced so we can ensure our students/staff are prepared with Emergency Protocol Readiness.  The soft-lockdown drill will consist of students and staff understanding the command code for our General Response Protocol.  Students are to follow teacher directions for a mock emergency in the building.  Students will remain silent and quickly move out of sight and away from the door in the classroom.  Teaching staff are trained to quickly retrieve any students in the hallway and lock their classroom door and wait for an ALL CLEAR announcement.

Again, this is a drill and we want students and staff to become familiar with the drills 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.

 

Very truly yours,

 

Gregg Korrol,

Principal
