The New Frontiers School Board requires that each of its buildings holds at least one lockdown practice per school year. The date is selected in advance and in collaboration with local police forces. This also allows teachers the opportunity to discuss the subject in advance with the students.
Our school’s lockdown drill will take place on Tuesday December 10th, 2019 at 9:30 a.m.
Your child may talk to you about the lockdown exercise or may have questions about it. We encourage you to talk about it with your child and to mention that it is important to follow directives during the exercise so that it takes place in a climate of trust and calm. You may also remind them that this is a “practice” and not a real emergency.
We recognize that the notion of being in “lockdown” may be unnerving to some. However, we feel that it is of the utmost importance that everyone be properly trained and prepared in the event of a real emergency. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
