Lockdown Drill this week:
We practice several different types of safety drills throughout the school year. This practice is for all students and staff to learn the procedures to remain safe and calm in the case of a safety event. Next week we’ll complete our first lockdown drill of the year. Please help prepare your Aviator by reviewing the information below with them. Thank you for speaking with your student so we can run a successful practice!
During a lockdown drill, all Aviators should:
