*Lockdown drill planned for tomorrow (Wed, March 17). Our staff and students will participate in a modified Lockdown drill.  A Lockdown is used when there is a threat inside the building.  Lockdown includes locking the classroom door, turning off the lights, and remaining silent.

Drills are being conducted differently this school year. Students will watch videos that review each standard response protocol (SRP) instead of physically participating in drills. This still effectively teaches students what to do in these situations, while also allowing students and staff to maintain the school safety protocols related to COVID-19.

Always feel free to contact the main office with questions.
