Upcoming Lockdown Drill at HMS

 Dear Parents and Guardians-

 In keeping with practices that promote the safety and well being of our students and staff, we will hold a lockdown drill on Thursday, December 12, at 8:20 AM. This is the sixth year that our district will participate in this type of drill and the first of two drills scheduled at HMS this school year.

 Our staff will discuss the lockdown protocol with our students during advisory groups and in classes/homerooms for several days before the drill. Students will be well versed in the instructions to stay "dark, low, and quiet.” Members of the Yarmouth Police Department will join us to critique our process and provide feedback. We wanted to share this information with you so you can check in with your child(ren) about the upcoming drill if it feels useful to do so.

 Thanks very much-

Joan Adler and Tom McDowell

HMS Administrative Team
