Drills are part of routine safety preparedness

Lockdown drills, fire drills, go-home-early drills, shelter in place drills, evacuation drills, go home early drills, and drills with first responders are routine but important parts of keeping students and staff prepared and our school safe. A bus evacuation drill and a shelter in place drill with the State Police K-9 unit were conducted recently, with officers and dogs walking school hallways.

Shelter in place procedures are initiated to keep students and staff where they are while an emergency situation is handled in or around the building. Teachers continue teaching and conducting business as usual, although no one is allowed to leave the room.

A set number of drills are required by the state, and drills are held throughout the year, not announced ahead of time and coordinated with local fire, emergency and law enforcement agencies.

Prescription drug alert

Many young people believe it is safe to take “medicine” out of the cabinet even if that medicine was not prescribed for them. And many of today's prescriptions are written for pain medications that can be deadly, addictive and in some cases lead to the use of very dangerous illegal drugs like heroin.

Education is the key. Parents: speak to your teens about the dangers of misusing prescription drugs and why they should not use other persons' medications.
