Lockdown Drill on Friday

During our lockdown drill on Friday, students and staff were thrown a curveball when the fire alarm was pulled. We are so proud that all students knew just what to do and it was handled perfectly. 

Safety Tip

Remember that any time you are in a lockdown, you stay behind locked doors. On Friday, when the fire alarm went off everyone knew just what to do and didn't come out of lockdown. Nice work!
