Dear Parents & Guardians,
Our teachers and staff have been familiarized with CRASE training. In order to introduce this training to students, all Shoemaker Elementary School students will participate in a safety drill on 11/22/21. Teachers will discuss with students the basics of the CRASE training. Emphasis will be placed on action(s) to take during an active shooter event, dependent upon factors such as location, proximity to danger, exits, and information that may be provided to students and staff through our public address system.
This safety drill will be different than past lockdown drills in that it will be discussion-based providing students with an opportunity to ask questions. The training will be modified appropriately to consider the developmental needs and chronological age of students. At the conclusion of the drill, we will seek teacher and student feedback so that we can continue the process of refining our crisis response procedures.
Thank you for your continued partnership in providing a safe and welcoming educational environment throughout the East Penn School District.
