St. Joseph School Families,
Safety of our children is a primary responsibility of our school staff. With that in mind, we regularly have fire drills, prepare for weather events and discuss procedures in the event of any intrusion of the building. On Thursday, November 17, we will be holding an intruder drill. We will conduct this drill in a manner that recognizes the sensitivity of all of our school community. Classrooms will work to ensure that students are not frightened with this drill. Mrs. Lengell will also be on hand in the event that any student is uncomfortable with this drill.
At 1:00 an announcement will be made, "We will now practice our safety drill." Teachers will lock their doors and ensure that students are out of view from the hallway. I will circulate the building and look through the doorways. An announcement will then be made, "Our safety drill has now ended." Staff will debrief the drill at a staff meeting.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
Chris Multhauf, Principal
