School Safety Exercise: As part of our safety plan, each fall a district wide safety exercise is held. This year we will be conducting this exercise across all three buildings on October 10th. This exercise will test multiple parts of our safety plan, including communications. On the day of the exercise test communications will be sent using our email and social media channels. Communications sent on the day of the drill will include the word ‘TEST’ at the beginning and end of each message. Once the drill has been completed a message will be sent to the entire district indicating the end of the safety exercise.
