Dear Heritage Husky Parent(s)/Guardian(s),
The safety and well-being of our students and staff are our highest priorities. We are proud to serve our families, and we continually strive to provide a safe learning environment for our students. In order to achieve that goal, it is necessary to practice our emergency and crisis response plans by having drills that are designed to exercise our procedures.
Over the past few years, we have learned and practiced different ways to respond to human-caused threats, such as an armed intruder, that are based on recommended practices from national, state, and local school safety authorities. Throughout the year, your student(s) will learn and practice the more proactive, “Run, Hide, Fight” approach for an armed intruder situation. It is important to know that there are options for staff and students to choose depending on the situation. Law enforcement officials and other first responders have found that when these strategies have been used, they have increased people’s chances of surviving an attack. Practicing these drills regularly and discussing what choices one may have in an armed intruder situation could save lives.
We will be conducting a safety drill at Heritage on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.
At Curriculum Night in September, parents/guardians were surveyed to see if there was interest in parents participating in a school safety drill this year. We received an overwhelmingly positive response, and therefore have opened that opportunity for December’s drill. If you are interested in participating in Heritage’s December 11th safety drill from 8:45 a.m. to 10 a.m., please register here. We can only accommodate a limited number of people, so participants will be registered on a first-come-first-served basis.
If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to call our school office at 614.797.6600.
Dr. Dru Tomlin, Principal
