December 7, 2020 To All T-bird Families: Thank you for choosing the Guy-Perkins School District to provide educational services for your child in 2020-21! The safety of our students and employees is extremely important to the district. In order to maintain a safe environment, it is necessary for students and employees to practice the district’s emergency-response plan through periodic safety drills. This letter is to inform you that administrators and law enforcement officers will soon be conducting a “lock-down drill” with students and employees in all district buildings. This “lock-down” drill is designed to help district employees secure campus buildings and safely shelter all students, employees, and visitors. All perimeter doors to each building will be locked and will remain locked until law enforcement officers clear each classroom, gym, and office space. For everyone’s safety, no one will be allowed to enter, or leave a building until the “lock-down” drill has been completed. For the safety of your child, you are asked to: • Avoid social media posts. Correct information will be disseminated through our automated system as soon as possible following the drill; • Make sure that all contact information is current so that you can be reached without delay in the event of an emergency; and • Expect notification where to safely pick up your child (in the event of an emergency). Please remember that these “lock-down” drills are done to help the district maintain a safe place for students and employees to learn and work. If you have questions regarding this drill, please contact your school office, or the district administration office. Sincerely, Dr. Joe Fisher, Superintendent
