This morning our school practiced a Hard Lock Down Drill under the guidance of the Schaumburg Police Department. This is the drill that students and staff would use if there ever was a safety risk in the school. Our students and staff did an amazing job! This drill was an unannounced drill so that we could test our systems and evaluate how we respond. District 54’s School Resource Officer Zwirowski and another Schaumburg police officer were impressed with our students and staff and how well they did during the drill.
We will be talking as a staff about the drill while looking to identify additional ways to keep everyone safe. We obviously hope never to need to use these procedures, but it helps all involved to know that they have the skills needed to respond if an emergency should arise.
