Good Morning CMS Families,
Today, during the school day at 8:05 a.m., Crestwood Middle School faculty, staff, and students practiced our A.L.I.C.E. Lock-Down/Evacuation procedures. This lock-down drill was unannounced to staff and students. Students and teachers did an excellent job of getting safely inside the classrooms and barricading the doors. The entire building was safely locked down in under one minute. Teachers and students then practiced evacuating the building. This also went very well, as students and staff exited the building very quickly and quietly.
Today’s lock-down drill was conducted with the assistance of our School Resource Officer, Sgt. Joe Urso and Mantua Police Chief Harry Buchert. All students and staff have been trained on what actions to take during a lock-down/evacuation. We appreciate the support and assistance of local law enforcement and the Crestwood Local School District Administration.
Educating your child in a safe environment is our highest priority. If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at (330) 357-8204. Thank you.
