I want to inform you that we will be conducting a lockdown drill during the school year that involves the entire WES campus. We will announce the date in advance to provide adequate preparation time. Testing our lockdown system is an essential component of our emergency preparedness plan and overall efforts to keep students, faculty, and staff safe. While these drills are important, they can create some uneasiness in students as well as adults. Our teachers will check in with your children following a drill, but I also encourage you to check in with them as well.
