Crazy Times, My Friends
Today at my school, we participated in a real-time lock down evacuation simulation with the St. Matthews Police, Fire, EMS and the Louisville Metro Police. There was recently a school shooting in our district and we want to be sure we have a rehearsed plan in the event that anything that awful ever happens in our building. It took over two hours to complete, but I must say, I was proud of how well the middle and high school students behaved. I tried to convey the seriousness of the drill to my own students, but you just never know. While I hope it never happens, I am glad my school administrators are on top of things as much as they can be.
