Please know that the safety of our students and staff will always be our top priority in District 202.
Over the last couple of years, Plainfield 202 has been working with the Plainfield Police Department to enhance our lockdown procedures by implementing the new, “best practice” protocol called “A.L.I.C.E.” A.L.I.C.E. essentially lets students and staff decide how to most effectively respond to an Active Shooter situation. History has shown there is no single response that fits all active shooter situations. Therefore, making sure everyone knows his or her options for an emergency response is important.
Today, Director Jennifer Orlos and Sergeant Mulacek spoke to the 6th grade about ALICE training. Over the next few days, I will be going around to all 6th grade study halls to have them practice an ALICE lockdown. We will then have a scripted, school-wide lockdown next week. Officers from the Plainfield police department will be on hand to assist, and to provide feedback.
As we just said to the 6th graders; this is not meant to scare, but to better prepare.
If you would like more information about the A.L.I.C.E. procedures, please click the links below to view what your students were presented with this afternoon.
If you have any questions, about A.L.I.C.E. and our implementation, please feel free to contact Mr. Luebbing.
