  • Intruder Drill and Fire Drill Were Very Successful

    Posted by Candi Vaughn at 8/25/2014 7:00:00 AM
    Our first Intruder and Fire Drill were held last week and the students and faculty did an incredible job securing the building, remaining quiet and then exiting the building in a calm and efficient manner. Please encourage your child to take these drills seriously so we can ensure all our students are safe in the event of an emergency.
