This morning, Perry Police officers joined our staff at Whipple Heights Elementary to conduct our second 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. We practiced a breach in security drill, where some teachers locked down and/or barricaded in their classrooms while others exited the building based on the information provided. Following the drill, classroom teachers talked with their students about the drill and what they did. So, don’t be surprised when your child comes home tonight talking about this drill or the presence of police officers at their school. Have a GREAT week!

Great things happen at Whipple Heights Elementary School. The most recent being the posting of Mr. Hug’s 1st Round Principal Showcase. The Principal Showcase is a bulletin board (located in the main hallway across from the office) where every four to five weeks teachers submit student work for recognition and display. Each time the board is changed we recognize these students on our website/social media. Additionally, when it’s time to change the board students receive a small token from Mr. Hug to reinforce his pride and excitement in their display of hard work. (more…)
