Our crisis team meets regularly to discuss, review, and revise our plan. Our plan includes being prepared for fire, tornado, lock down, and many other emergencies. Though we hope we never need to implement any of these plans, we are proactive and students see the drills as fairly “typical” events at school. The purpose is to make students and staff aware of the procedures, in the event that a real crisis arises.
Yesterday, we had an unannounced situation near Troy Crossroads. The police contacted us, and indicated we should be aware of a situation in the area. When this situation occurred, one of our crisis procedures, a “Stay in Place,” was instated for the entire school. This means that students and teachers remained in the classroom and teaching continued. The hallways remained clear of students for safety.
At no time were students or staff in danger, and as always, safety and learning are top priorities at Troy Crossroads. The Crossroads staff and students should be commended for a job well done!
