TRAFFIC SAFETY
Individuals driving to the school need to be aware of traffic regulations. Everyone should drive responsibly. Students who arrive in cars can be let out at the side gate. There is space for a car to pull over to the sidewalk so that students can exit on the sidewalk side. Cars cannot park around the main gate due to safety evacuation procedures. You are putting your own children and school personnel at risk by doing so.

SAFETY DRILLS

There are two types of safety signals. Drills will be held intermittently throughout the instructional school year to ensure student and faculty awareness of procedures. They are as follows:

A. FIRE DRILL OR BOMB DRILL
Students, staff and faculty will hear a constant siren and then follow the building evacuation procedures distributed by the administration and posted in each classroom. In this drill, all members of the school are evacuated to their appropriate places within the basketball court. When the building is cleared an announcement will be made for all members to return to the classrooms.

B. DROP AND COVER / LOCK DOWN DRILL
An announcement will be made directing all members to drop to the floor and take cover under desks and tables and other protective areas. All school members will be asked to stay away from windows. They will be notified when it is clear to proceed with the school day.
