Geneva schools need lockdown supplies

(Continued)

HARPERSFIELD TOWNSHIP —

“We had been talking about the ALICE training for more than a year,” she said. “The PTO’s have been amazing in the way they stepped up and covered the costs.”

Zappitelli said the district’s staff and students will receive further training in ALICE procedures throughout the school year.

Doherty said the implementation of the ALICE procedures and the preparations for lock down should not be a fear response.

“I want to note that we do lock downs for a number of reasons,” she said. “This is not just about gunmen or intruders in the building. This is a total safety procedure for a lot of reasons. There is a confidence in being prepared. I feel really good about it.”

Doherty said each building is collecting the ALICE bucket items in different ways.

Zappitelli said the safety of students is always front-of-mind in every school.

“We want to do our best to protect,” she said. “This training, these precautions are the right course for our district. We train for fires, for tornadoes and now intruders are part of the precautions we take.”
