Welcome To Lincoln Elementary Thanks for Visiting

School Safety Drill Successful

Published: April 24, 2015

Dear Lincoln Parents and Guardians,

Thank you so much for your cooperation this morning during our school wide lockdown and evacuation drill this morning. Our teachers, students and staff members did an outstanding job throughout the duration of the entire drill.  Our students were quiet, as directed, and followed all directions that our teachers and staff members provided for them.  As I exited the building with the last class to be evacuated and walked to the First Baptist Church, several of our drill helpers (Morton Public Works employees, Morton Firefighters, Tazewell County Sheriff’s Deputies, Morton Police Department and District 709 school personnel) commented to me about how quiet and well behaved our students were throughout the drill and how impressed they were with the students.  I am so, so proud of them!!


I am also proud of the leadership that our teachers and staff members show our students during these kinds of activities.  Our students are able to easily follow directions and walk quietly because of the way that our teachers and staff prepare our students for the drill and because of the way that they support the students during the drill itself. 


We thank you, too, for your help in preparing your child for a drill like this.  There were MANY police personnel here at school and at the church.  Students know that these community helpers are here to help us and make sure we are safe, thanks to the conversations that we have with our students AND thanks to the conversations that you have with your children at home.  Thank you again for all of your support with our drill.


There were a couple of parents who wanted to enter the building while the drill was ongoing.  I apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.  As I did share in my previous communication to parents via newsletter and email about the drill, there was to be no entry into the building while the drill was in progress.  Our office personnel were following the directions given to them by myself and the Morton Police Department. Thank you for your understanding to ensure a safe and secure school during the drill.As a follow up to our drill, I will be meeting with Chief Craig Hilliard next week to review the procedures we followed.


Please be sure to congratulate your child on a great job today…they truly had excellent behavior.


Thanks and have a great weekend!
