It is a sad fact that in 2019 we have to prepare for emergency situations in schools that we did not even envision many years ago. This month (March, 2019) Birch Meadow School will hold an ALICE emergency drill. Please read below for information about ALICE and our protocols for drills.
The day of the drill you will receive an email notification about the drill prior to dismissal. If you have any questions you can contact email@example.com
Here are two links to videos about ALICE Drills.
This video is directed toward teens and adults and is not necessarily appropriate for elementary school age students. However it gives a good overview of the components and protocols of ALICE.
This video of an Akron police officer presenting ALICE to elementary school age students provides language and a frame of reference for discussing ALICE with elementary school age children.
This is a school wide ALICE Tip Sheet for teachers and staff.
