On Tuesday, November 29th, we will be holding our annual security drill. The drill will be held at 9am. the purpose of these drills is to practice our procedures in the event a stranger would enter the building. The drill is held each year, as required by the State of Ohio, in order to be prepared in case of an emergency.
The teachers will be preparing their classrooms for the security drill and will be using the following statement with the children. You may also wish to prepare your child using the same language to help support safety at school. It is our goal to prepare students for this type of emergency without causing undo worry or alarm.
At school, we continue to make sure that all of you are safe. We have Mr. George in the front of the building making sure that only safe people come into our school. However, just in case a stranger comes into our building, we are going to practice what we should do to keep all of us safe. This is a lot like our fire and tornado drills. We don’t expect that we will ever actually have a fire or tornado or a stranger in our building, but we have to practice what we should do to keep safe just in case it does happen.
As in all situations, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your continued support of all of the children at Falls-Lenox.
