The following information was disseminated via phone message at 5:00 PM on October 8, 2018:
A recent state law requires an emergency drill to be carried out during the first 90 days of school. Therefore, East Penn School District middle schools will participate in a safety drill on October 10, 2018.
This safety drill will be similar to the emergency drill practiced last May. It will be discussion-based providing students with an opportunity to ask questions. At the conclusion of the drill, we will seek teacher and student feedback so that we can continue the process of refining our district’s crisis response procedures.
Thank you for your continued partnership in providing a safe and welcoming educational environment throughout the East Penn School District.
