As previously announced, Da Vinci Communications, Da Vinci Design and Da Vinci Science will be conducting an armed intruder drill on Thursday, March 1, 2018. This drill is a normal part of our continued efforts each year to maintain a safe and peaceful school environment. The drill will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will take place at an unannounced time during the day. Teachers have been working with students during Advisory classes to prepare for this drill. The “armed intruder” for the drill will simply be a person with a sign that states “armed intruder drill”. During the drill, students will have a chance to practice the proper response if such a crisis were to occur. A Resource Officer from the El Segundo Police Department will be observing the drill and providing feedback on processes and procedures. Students and staff will be debriefing the drill on the following day.
So the schools can remain informed and responsive, parents and students are encouraged to report any concerns or potential threats to the school. If you have any questions regarding this or the drill, please do not hesitate contact the front office of your child’s school. Thank you for your support in maintaining the safety of our students, staff and schools.
