School Safety Drills Notice

Over the course of the school year, the school will hold several drills to help ensure that students and staff know what steps to take in the event of an emergency. These drills include, but are not limited to, fire, tornado and lockdown. Sometimes these drills will be planned, while other times spontaneous drills are held to assess everyone’s ability to respond quickly to emergencies. Many drills are held in conjunction with the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Fire and Life Safety.

Please note that if you arrive at school during a drill, you will be asked to remain outside until the drill concludes. We appreciate your cooperation and apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

To reduce confusion in the event of a true emergency, we will not call or email families when we hold a drill at our school unless there are unusual circumstances. If you have any questions about our efforts to keep our school safe for students and staff, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
