School Safety Training 10/3/2017
Safety of students and staff is of the upmost importance to Springfield Public Schools, and while tragic and highly covered by media, school violence is actually quite rare.
We at SPS are acutely aware of the tragic nature of such situations and are committed to equipping our schools with the best practices to keep everyone safe. The way that we have trained for dangerous intruders is not changing it is evolving. SPS is implementing best practices and is working in collaboration with our local law enforcement partners to implement the ALICE method.
ALICE empowers everyone to use his or her best judgment on each unique situation.
ALICE stands for Alert Lockdown Inform Counter Evacuate.
Here at THS we will be training on Tuesday, October 3rd. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any additional questions.
