The High School and Middle School will be conducting an intruder/lockdown drill during the month of November. A lockdown is a response to an internal threat in the building. The drill will be conducted in cooperation with the Saratoga County Sheriff.
The drill is not meant to alarm anyone, but rather to develop and practice an appropriate response to a potentially, yet unlikely, dangerous situation. It is important that we not announce the specific date and time of the drill to ensure that students and staff respond in a genuine manner. We view the need to practice such a drill in the same light as we practice fire drills. We hope never to encounter either situation, but we need to be prepared for any eventuality.
The High School and Middle School will work with the Sheriff to create a mock incident that will initiate the lockdown drill. If you have any questions please feel free to call the middle school office at 518-654-9005 ext. 3412. Thank you.
