New guidance for school districts across the state has been provided regarding the notification of security drills. All schools are required to notify families when a school security drill has been conducted. This directive comes from the Office of School Preparedness and Emergency Planning. Notification of when a security drill has occurred will become part of our monthly practice. Moving forward, parents and guardians will receive a message from the principal or principal's designee following the monthly drill. There is no response required from families; it is informational only.
