Safety Drill Information

Today, Perry Police Officers joined our staff at Whipple Heights Elementary to conduct our first set of safety drills for the 2017-2018 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 talking about these drills or the presence of police officers at the school.  Have a GREAT week!
