PTA MEETING UPDATE

January 2020


LOCKDOWN DRILLS

Principal Swoger, along with his team (shout-out to A.P. Davis, A.P. Casablanca and Ms. Ricks!!!) heard our concerns over lockdown drills at a previous PTA meeting.

So, the team will be sending out a notice to let families know a lockdown drill has occurred via the FCPS "News You Choose" email list, for families to be aware when a drill has happened, in case students have any questions or concerns when they get home.
MANY THANKS to the Admin Team!

parents & caregivers (from Colorado Public Radio) who might want to talk to their students at home.
