Keeping Families in the Loop

This morning, Perry Police Officers joined our staff at Whipple Heights Elementary to conduct our first set of safety drills for the 2016-2017 school year.  This is standard practice in Perry Local designed to ensure all students understand what to do in the event of any type of emergency.  Classrooms teachers talked with the students about what a drill is and why we conduct them prior to beginning the drills and then worked to answer questions following the completion of them.  We practiced both a building-wide lock in and a building-wide evacuation drill.  So, don’t be surprised when your child comes home tonight talking about these drills or the presence of police officers at school.  Have a GREAT weekend!
