School District Of The City Of York
School safety drill prepares students, staff for lockdown response
Earlier this year, the state legislature passed Act 44 – School Safety and Security Act. The new law requires that every district hold an annual school safety drill with local first responders within the first 90 days of school. In compliance with the new law, the school district held a lockdown drill at 9:30 am. today, October 19, 2018. The purpose of this drill was for students and staff in each school building to practice the protocols for a lockdown.
The School District of the City of York works hard to ensure the safety of all students and staff at all times. To do that, we must be prepared for different scenarios that require our students and staff to take action. If you have any questions about this drill, please contact your child’s principal.
