The incident in Newtown, Connecticut has shaken us all and it behooves us at Salt Creek to take a careful look at our safety procedures with this vivid and disturbing picture so fresh in our minds. Here are the steps we are planning to take this week.
Monday morning 8:00 AM – Mandatory staff meeting in auditorium to discuss appropriate/inappropriate classroom conversations about the incident based on this document from the Association of School Psychologists
*** Time Change Tuesday 9:00 am *** Time Change – Lockdown and Evacuation: Our monthly drill was planned for this week (from postponed drill of last week) and is the perfect time to practice procedures and consider where we may need to make modification, enhancements, etc.
And in the future…
Thursday, February 14th is our scheduled table top exercise during our staff meeting to plan a complete emergency response. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
