SHS Families: Early this afternoon, a four-jurisdiction effort, led by the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department, had drug-sniffing dogs conduct scan of all instructional areas, restrooms and lockers, at Schoolcraft High School. During the scan, all high school students, on campus at the time, were supervised in the gymnasium by school personnel. The scan took about 45 minutes. Any locations, or items, identified by the dogs as suspicious, were verified as suspicious by a separate dog, then searched by the administration and local authorities. Special care was used to assure compliance with Board Policy 5771: Search and Seizure: Use of Dogs. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Seager at 488-7360.

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!
