Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),
The safety and welfare of our students and staff are our highest priority in the Kane Area School District. At 1:30 on Wednesday April 12th, the KASD will be conducting a school wide lockdown drill. During the morning of Friday, April 28th the district will have a severe weather drill which is held every spring during the last week in April.
We practice safety drills throughout the year to help our staff and students know what to do in an emergency.
Our school works closely with local authorities and U.S. Homeland Security information to correctly develop and implement safety procedures. The goals of drills throughout the school year are to improve our ability to protect students, save lives, and reduce injuries. These practice drills allow us to evaluate our emergency operation plans and improve our response skills.
Please be advised that during the drill visitors are prohibited from entering the building. Visitors who are already inside the building will take part in the drill.
These drills are conducted so that our safety plans can be implemented effectively by our staff.
Please talk with your child, if you deem it appropriate, about the drill. Our goal, while practicing important safety procedures, is to be sure all students feel safe.
If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to call us.
