Lockdown Drill Thursday, September 20, 2018
Good Morning -
This is Jeremy Belfield, Superintendent for LaFayette Central Schools. Today is Thursday September 20, 2018. I am calling all families to inform about our planned lock down drill that occurred today at approximately 9:00 AM.
New York State requires school districts to perform regularly scheduled lock down drills. A lock down is used to secure school buildings and grounds during incidents that pose an immediate threat in or around the school. Again, I would like to emphasize that today’s exercise was a planned drill. During the lockdown drill, students and staff remain locked inside of the classroom until cleared by school personnel. Thank you to our students and staff for their participation in this planned emergency drill. Please know that the safety and security of our students is our utmost priority. Thank you and have a great day.
