School Safety Drill-April 24th

Published: April 7, 2014

You may recall that last year, the school conducted a complete lockdown and evacuation drill with students.  It is required by law that we conduct an “active shooter drill” each year.  There are several ways that we can meet this requirement, and the evacuation drill is one which we will probably be conducting every other year.

 In an effort to minimize instructional time lost after multiple emergency days due to weather, and given the nature of the drill this year, our drill is going to be for ADULTS ONLY.

Following our regular school dismissal on Thursday, April 24th,  we will be conducting an “Active Shooter Drill” in cooperation with the Morton Police Department. We are requiring that all students and non-employees be out of the building on Thursday afternoon no later than 2:45 pm until the drill is completed. This should be at approximately 4 pm.

Once the adults are locked down (approximately 2:55 pm), tactical officers will be discharging blanks from firearms in multiple locations at Lincoln School.  The purpose of this drill is for the adults to be able to recognize the sound from a variety of locations within the building. Once the drill is complete, teachers and staff will debrief with officers and district personnel.

Please make sure that your child is picked up no later than 2:45 pm on Thursday, April 24th. There will be no activities, practices, etc. on Lincoln’s campus (including the gym and outside ball diamonds) until after 4:30 pm.  Children WILL NOT be permitted to use our playground area after school until after 4:30 pm.

 As always, we are continually evaluating how to increase the safety and security of our students and staff.  This drill is one more step in equipping the adults in the building with knowledge to help that happen.  If you have questions, please contact the school.  Thanks for your cooperation.

Ms. Julie Albers

Principal, Lincoln Elementary
