Indian Community School of Milwaukee


Practice Lock-down drill follow-up

February 17, 2015

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Today at Indian Community School the students and staff were involved in a practice drill for a preventative and emergency lockdown. The drill is one way to keep students and staff aware of emergency procedures in the event an emergency would occur.

The students and staff did an excellent job following all the safety procedures.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Jason Dropik or myself, Ms. Amy Tromp, here at the school.

Please continue to review with your child/children about safety and following directions to ensure safety for all. Yaw^ko.
