Miss Sherlock's class had lots of great questions for Officer Dempsey during their ALICE training.
We love positive office referrals!
ALICE stands for Alert Lockdown Inform Counter Evacuate. It’s a developmentally appropriate training for what to do in the event of an intruder at school.
Dear Parents- I wanted to let you know that students have participated in ALICE training with the Dixon Police Department. This training took place yesterday and today in several classrooms. I apologize that I didn't send a previous notification and give parents the option to opt out of this training. That was an oversight on my part and I will take steps to ensure that doesn't happen again in the future. If you have any questions about the training, please give me a call. I was able to sit in with individual classes and would be happy to give you the details on what was presented. Thank you. Mr. Sagel, principal Madison School
