We hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day Weekend.
One of the components of New York State “Project Save” legislation is the requirement to practice Emergency Response Drills (Safety Drills). The Buffalo Police Department partners with our school to assure satisfactory completion of the drills.
In compliance with “Project Save” requirements, we will hold our last practice drill on 5/31/23. Before this date, teachers will discuss this safety drill in their classrooms with the students. Teachers will share the comparison of fire drills that are held regularly. As we practice “fire drills” to keep us safe outside our school, we will practice “Safety Drills” to keep us safe inside our school.
Our Safety Drill includes the following procedures in each classroom once a building announcement has been made:- Teacher closes and locks classroom door, lights on and blinds raised. - Students will move to an area in the classroom away from windows/doors, and be seated on the floor.
We are committed to maximizing the safety of everyone in our school by practicing these drills. We also want every student to be comfortable with our procedures and confident that they are safe in school.
We will have a parent meeting to discuss the change in student start and end times of next school year. We will meet virtually on Wednesday at 4 pm. The link can be found at www.buffaloschools.org/parents355.
