Summerville High School- Tuolumne, CA

Summerville High School ran a “Safe School Drill.” The safety training program called A.L.I.C.E., which Superintendent Robert Griffith shares stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate.  As for this past Thursday’s drill, Griffith reports it went well, while interjecting, “It’s not one and done training. This will take many revisits to make sure all [staff, students, and parents] understand the new protocols” He points out that these drills help discover problem areas like “a door left unlocked or a maintenance issue with one sticking” that need to be fixed. The school hopes to schedule the trainers returning within weeks and throughout the school year, according to Griffith, to provide more hands-on drills, which at some point will include a shooter lockdown situation.
