Aloha Parents, Guardians, and our Waimea Community,
Please click and read the link above.
With two school shootings just the week, I think it’s timely that Waimea High School students and staff are gearing up for our next active shooter drill on Tuesday, February 6th. This drill will occur sometime between 8:30 - 9:30 am and will include Kauai Police Department officers firing blank gunshot rounds, running down the hallways and pounding on classroom doors. Students and staff will have a second opportunity to put their training into practice, as they will have to decide if they will be able to safely run away from the danger or will need to lockdown and barricade their classrooms, preparing to fight if necessary. As this is a drill, students and staff who decide to run will stop at the fence line or border of campus.
I also want to share the powerpoint presentation on Sheltering in Place that advisory representatives are using to teach their peers as a follow up to the accidental ballistic missile alert sent to Hawaii residents on January 13th. We are asking students to go home and work with you on a family emergency plan that considers if members are together or scattered across the island. Please feel free to use the information on the slides as talking points for this conversation. Shelter in Place
