School Emergency Practice Drill


A reminder to all our Birchmount families that our school has scheduled a Lockdown practice drill for tomorrow Wednesday December 7th in the morning.  Similar to our Fire Drills and Evacuation Drills these will be taking place a couple times of year for our staff and students to ensure all are familiar and comfortable with the process.

Teachers have been reviewing and educating their students on the process for the past week to ease any concerns or answer any questions they may have.

If you feel your child may need additional support/preparation for this drill, please let their homeroom teacher know in as soon as possible so we can ensure support is in place.
