Dear Parents and Guardians,
In keeping with best practices that promote the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff, we will hold a lockdown drill on Thursday, February 7, at 2:15 PM.
This is the fifth year that our district is participating in lock down drills, and the second of two drills scheduled for this year. We are sharing this information with you so you can check in with your child(ren) about the upcoming drill if it feels useful to do so.
Our staff will discuss the lockdown protocol during advisory groups and in classes/homerooms for several days this week before the drill. Students will be well versed in the instructions to stay "dark, low, and quiet.” Members of the Yarmouth Police Department will join us to critique our process and provide feedback.
Thanks very much-
Joan Adler and Tom McDowell
HMS Administrative Team
