Always know that keeping your child safe is my top priority! In order to ensure that we can respond to any unforeseen emergency in a calm and organized manner, we practice drills. Each month we practice two safety drills. One is a fire drill. The other is another type of safety drill, such as an evacuation drill, a lockdown or a lock out. In each situation, I explain to the children that we are practicing following directions and staying safe. We do not go in to any further explanation of why we might need to have a lock down or lock out.
Please know that if there were a true emergency, I would follow up with a letter to you. If you hear your children discussing any of these scenarios, you will know that it is a drill. Should you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to call the school any time.
