Greetings SCS Parents/Guardians: This communication comes as notification of our next school safety drill event to take place this Wednesday morning, December 12th, in each of our three buildings. As part of the A.L.I.C.E. safety protocol, which you will recall is the board adopted procedural plan for school safety, each building will share a short, grade-level appropriate instructional video followed by the classroom teacher guiding their students through a Lockdown/Barricade practice event with the support and supervision of local law enforcement. Please know that the Schoolcraft Community Schools take school safety very seriously and are committed to the enhanced security protocols provided through the A.L.I.C.E. program. We encourage parents to discuss this training with your student(s) both prior to and after the Wednesday training. Thank you in advance for your support!
