Information on ALICE Training
Dear Lincoln parents and guardians:
ISD 728 is committed to providing the safest possible environment for its students and staff. In order to maintain a safe learning environment, we consistently work with law enforcement to learn and implement best practices in school safety and security.
ISD 728 continues a partnership with ALICE Training Institute this school year. The acronym stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. ALICE prepares us with proactive, options-based strategies for an active shooter on campus situation while remaining age and ability appropriate.
All ISD 728 teachers, staff, and administrators have been trained in the ALICE protocols. Students will be reviewing this information with their teachers and other school staff on October, 7, 2019. During this time, students will receive an overview of the program, and they will be talking through a drill with a classroom teacher. This information is the same as last year in an effort to reinforce the concepts they have learned previously.
In advance of this review, we are asking parents to watch these video presentations that will be shared with our grade K-2 & 3-5 students:
I would encourage you to speak with your student(s) after the ALICE training and ask about the information they learn. For more information you can visit ISD 728 Prevention & Safety Department website.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
Justin Sperling, Principal
Lincoln Elementary School
