School Safety with Enhanced Drills
The goal of the Bullard Havens is to make the drills we perform even more effective through up to date best practices and preparation. When drills are carefully planned, thoughtfully and thoroughly executed, the school community is more likely to be better prepared.
Our drills are always designed with sensitivity in mind and there is no intention of a shock value type drill. We want to prepare our students and staff with best practices in case a crisis does occur. We are required by law to perform eight (8) fire drills and four (4) lock down drills. We will always perform our drills with diligence and with intent to prepare our students and staff.
Safety training occurs for staff and students throughout the school year. Our school’s emergency operations plans are modified as needed in order to improve procedures. Within Bullard Havens, training drills are conducted on a monthly basis that include one the following:
- Walk-Off (Evacuation from School Grounds)
- Lockdown (Active Shooter)
- Shelter in Place.
All drills are conducted with a preventative focus to be prepared for such emergencies.
