Emergency Drill Planned for Today

Thu, 03/31/2016

The School District will be participating in a Community Emergency Response Drill being conducted by local and regional police departments and other emergency responders. The responders will be reacting to a simulated emergency situation occurring near Knoebels Amusement Park. Because of its close proximity to the school, if this were a real emergency, the school would be affected, and would need to react. The time of the event won’t be known until its occurrence, however, when it occurs, we are anticipating the need to put all schools on a lockdown alert.
