Bethel Compost Sale

This Friday Meadow View students and staff will practice a lockdown drill. Lockdown is the command used in the event of a threat-or perceived threat at or near our school.
During our drill on Friday, an intercom announcement will inform staff and students that the drill will begin. Staff will then be asked to secure their classrooms. Teachers will lock classroom doors, close the blinds, move students away from the windows, turn out the lights, and ask students to remain quiet. The drill will last about three minutes, at which point another announcement will be made that the drill is over.
This week, teachers will be talking to students to prepare them for the drill. Teachers will let students know that during a lockdown it’s very important to stay quiet and listen to adult directions in order to stay safe. Teachers will also share that in the event of imminent danger, they may ask students (depending on grade level) to help barricade the door to make sure no one can enter the room or ask students to quickly evacuate the building.
These are rehearsals that we hope never have to be put into practice. At the same time we are also meeting state requirements which call for schools to practice a lockdown drill at least once each year.
We intend to continue sharing our plans with you as we work together to ensure a safe school environment for all.
As always, feel free to contact me for clarification or more information.
