Thank you to Chief Deputy Rich Wagner and Deputy Adam Goehl and their team of deputies for conducting an Active Threat Drill for our high school and middle school today. These drills are essential in helping our students and staff prepare for different scenarios which unfortunately may happen in schools today.
I would like to commend our students, staff and administration for their participation and performance in today's drills. Everyone reacted and performed will in the scenarios that were conducted. Following the drills the students were given an opportunity to reflect on what had happened as a group as well as with their individual teachers.
I encourage parents/guardians to speak to their children tonight about the drills and help them process what they would do in the event there was an active threat in the school. Again, it is our goal to provide the best education in the safest environment for your child.
Yours in education,
Scott D. Riddle, Superintendent
This is just a reminder that today we will be practicing with the Adams County Sheriff's Department for an "Active Threat" to our school. This is only a drill and will be done at the high school and middle school campus this afternoon. Our district does annual training to prepare our students and staff for different types of threats. It is our goal to provide the safest environment for your student to learn and this is part of maintaining our preparedness.
