Parents are invited to view a presentation about the ALICE training that Swampscott High School and Swampscott Middle School students will be trained in during the month of March. The elementary schools will participate in a version of this training that has been prepared for students in the younger grades.
We encourage all parents to attend. While parents will not practice the drills, they will see the materials & presentation that the students will be seeing in the upper grades, and the basic premise of Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate.
The training will be held from 6:30-8:00 PM at Swampscott High School in the auditorium.
If you cannot attend, the materials will be posted on the district website next week. You can also look at the following links to materials prepared by Masconoment, Tewksbury, and Waltham.
