Maple Hill Families,

Earlier today (May 31) we held an unannounced lockdown drill in our building. It lasted approximately 25-30 minutes and was the last of four lockdown drills New York State requires us to hold each year. This particular drill was conducted during our advisory block to assess how everyone in the building can best prepare for a potential lockdown situation in between classes. 

For anyone unfamiliar with how these drills work, we announce over the PA system that a lockdown drill has begun. Everyone in the building then follows the lockdown protocols and police officers inspect how well those protocols are being followed, taking note of what, if anything, could be improved.

Thank you to all of the police departments who assisted with this year’s drills and to all our students and employees for their cooperation during them.
