Upcoming ALICE Training
As you may know, we conduct emergency drills monthly during the school year. These drills include fire, earthquake, campus evacuation, shelter in place, and lockdown. This month we are conducting our district approved enhanced lockdown drill/training. This drill will be accomplished in two parts: Part 1 will be an ALICE assembly day which consists of 3 individual grade specific assemblies to re-teach the principles of ALICE during an enhanced lockdown situation. Part 2 will consist of instruction and practice with students and staff in the classroom.
The principles of ALICE are as follows:
Alert (students and staff are made aware of an emergency and need to respond appropriately)
Lockdown (get into or remain in classroom, barricade the door, and be prepared to evacuate)
Inform (call 911 when in a safe area)
Counter (yell and throw items at an intruder and run)
Escape (evacuate/ leave the building and campus as quickly as possible to relocation area)
These principles are not linear. An alert will always initiate the principles, but the other steps do not have to be completed in order. An example is if you are alerted, and it is safe to do so, evacuate the building/ campus, run to our rally point, and then call 911. Any questions about ALICE training, please contact the main office 360-458-3600 to be connected to our ALICE trainer Mr. Aiken.
