Safety Drill at WS Today
At 8:55 am today, we did our monthly safety drill. Today's exercise was "Clear the Hall - Secure the Building, Move to the Second Floor". Our 226, K-8 students, did an amazing job! During the debriefing after the drill, the Inhouse Crisis Team declared that the students who did move to the second floor did so in a quiet, quick and safe manner. You could hear a pin drop within seconds of the command being called. Principal Oakman did an "All Clear" call within 4 minutes of the start of the drill, praising all students for their excellent behavior. Teachers also debriefed with their classes to make sure children are not frightened by the exercise, but see it as practice and part of the work we do in schools today. WS is a safe school! Be sure to ask your child about today's drill when they come home today.
