Lockdown Drill - St. Emily School is committed to providing a safe environment for all students and staff. As required by the Illinois School Safety Drill Act, schools must conduct a law enforcement lockdown drill in case of an active threat within our building. With the guidance and presence of the Mt. Prospect Police Department, we will conduct our lockdown drill on Thursday, October 26 at 10:00 am. During the drill, no one will be allowed to enter or exit the building. All building occupants participate in the lockdown drills: students, staff, and any visitors who may be in the building at that time.
Prior to the drill, the students are briefed by their teacher in an age-appropriate manner so that they know what to do in the event of a lockdown situation being called. If you would prefer to not have your child participate in the drill, please have them arrive after 10:30 on that date.
