Millis School Safety Update 2016
Published on Nov 15, 2016 12:53

Dear Middle School families,

Members of the Millis School Safety Task Force continue to work together to refine plans and procedures to ensure the safety of students and staff members in the event of an emergency. During this school year, we are working to design additional resources and communicate safety procedures with all stakeholders. 

Over the past two weeks, all Millis School personnel attended a presentation by Police Chief Chris Soffayer to review our training from 2015 and the current enhanced lockdown procedure. Last night, Chief Soffayer presented an overview of the program to parents in the High School Auditorium. Please click this link for the Millis School Safety Update 2016, which can also be found in the Virtual Backpack Quicklink.

We have planned two age-appropriate assemblies for middle school students with Chief Soffayer next Tuesday morning, November 22. One will be for students in grades 5 & 6; another will be for students in grades 7 & 8. The presentations will introduce students to the 4L’s (Locate, Lockdown, Leave, and Live) and will review the general procedures for an enhanced lockdown in our building. Through education we feel we can empower both children and adults to act in an emergency situation. However, we recognize that students may be anxious about this topic and ask that you contact the Middle School office if you do not want your child to attend the assembly. Also feel free to contact Chief Soffayer or me with any questions.

Thank you,

Maureen Knowlton, Principal
