Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),
The safety and welfare of our students and staff are our highest priority at the Henry Viscardi School. At 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, December 3, 2015, the Henry Viscardi School conducted a school wide lockdown drill. We practice safety drills throughout the year to help our staff and students know what to do in an emergency.
Our school has worked closely with local authorities and representatives from U.S. Homeland Security to correctly develop and implement safety procedures. The goals of drills throughout the school year are to improve our ability to protect students, save lives, and reduce injuries. These practice drills allow us to evaluate our emergency operation plans and improve our response skills.
We are pleased with the outcome of today’s drill and feel reassured that our safety plans can be implemented effectively by our staff.
Please talk with your child, if you deem it appropriate, about the drill. Our goal, while practicing important safety procedures, is to be sure all students feel safe.
If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to call us.
Very truly yours,
