|DISTRICT NEWS, Simulated Emergency Exercises Scheduled - 2014.08.22
Simulated Emergency Exercises Scheduled
Parents and Community Leaders –
Our school system in conjunction with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Gonzales Police Department and emergency services will participate in a number of simulated emergency exercises (specifically, lock down drills) in schools throughout our school district beginning the week of September 2, 2014 and continuing periodically throughout the school year.
The ultimate goal of these exercises is to ensure the continued safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff throughout our school district. By conducting these exercises, we will learn from the experiences of simulated emergencies in a school setting. This will allow for us to continuously improve our preparedness and response efforts to emergency situations.
It is important to note that these exercises are simulated scenarios only and will be closely monitored by law enforcement partners, emergency personnel and our school officials. These exercises will not involve simulated actors or props.
In an effort to increase awareness additional communication will be sent to parents and guardians when lock down exercises are being conducted.
The Ascension Parish School Board, the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office and Gonzales Police Department hold the highest priorities for our students’ safety; therefore, partnering around these exercises will only serve to improve our response to actual emergency situations.
