Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s):
The safety and welfare of our students and staff are our highest priority. To provide our school with an opportunity to practice emergency response procedures, the Carmichaels Area Elementary Staff and Administration are supporting an opportunity for all students and staff to participate in a school-wide training day on Thursday, March 8th, 2018.
GOALS – The goals of the training day are to improve our ability to protect students, save lives, and reduce injuries. The day will allow us to evaluate our emergency operations plan and improve our response skills. Most importantly, it provides an opportunity for the students and staff to develop a “tool belt” of skills which empowers them to make the best decisions for survival if they ever experience a similar emergency (in school or in life.) As part of the drill, the students and staff will participate in the activation of our safety plan through ALICE Response Options.
SIMULATION LEVEL – The focus of the day is on actively practicing ALICE skills, not on scaring students. There will be no pretend active shooter, no “gun” and no simulated injury scenes. Instead training will be conducted using your students’ teachers. These teachers will use grade sensitive training to give your child practical skills to respond to the given situation. If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to call our school office at (724) 966-5045 ext 1233.
Fred Morecraft, Principal
