BMS Families, 

Today we practiced a Lockdown Drill for about 7 minutes in which we used the “Lockdown” process outlined in our MSD Emergency Operations plan. In a “Lockdown” situation, there is a threat or hazard inside the school building. During a “Lockdown,” classrooms are locked, lights are turned off, and staff/students get out of sight. Students were informed that we'd practice this drill this morning at the assembly. An announcement was made just before the drill began reminding students it was a drill. Meeker police were on site during the drill.

We will practice various drills throughout the school year. Some will be announced, others will not. We will always communicate with families after the drill. We practice so we are ready in a real emergency.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Johnston @ katie.johnston@meeker.k12.co.us or 970-878-9060 Ext 202.
