To: The Students, Guardians, and Teachers Re: Security Drill The intent of this letter is to communicate the purpose and process of a security drill that is planned for Wednesday, October 30th during the recess times. All schools in Pennsylvania are required to run a security drill within the first 90 days of school. These drills are different than our standard fire drills and simulate situations that could pose a threat to students. The purpose for any drill is to educate, not alarm, and all students will know in advance the specifics of the simulation. The drill will be a verbal simulation requiring staff and students to return into the building from recess. The simulation is known as a “Reverse Drill” and may be implemented for severe weather, an animal that is loose nearby that could cause harm, or a type of threat to the safety of our students and staff. During this drill all students and staff return inside the building, all activities within the building continue as normal. The purpose of this drill is simply to see how long it takes for all students and staff outside to safely return inside the building. We expect the drill will last approximately 10-15 minutes and afterwards the regular activities outside will continue. Hopefully this information will ease any anxiousness or concerns. Although the threat of harm to school students is extremely low, it is wise and necessary to practice security procedures as a part of our overall safety plan. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Bedford Elementary office at 814-623-4221. Sincerely Leslie Turkovich Elementary Principal
