This week students and staff participated in their first Lockdown drill in partnership with our Director of Security and the Louisville Police Department. Our visitors were impressed with Fireside's level of preparedness thanks to the cooperation of our students and staff. I encourage parents to take a moment to review the Standard Response Protocol we use to support school safety, view the short video and discuss the drills with your child by accessing the resource link here Should parents have any questions regarding safety practices at Fireside, please don't hesitate to contact Mrs. Keppler or a Safety Committee member: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Our safety motto at Fireside is..."See something, say something." As a community safety is all our responsibility.
On the topic of safety, a parent recently shared a resource with me regarding sexual abuse training. Here's a simple online tool that might support how you address this sensitive topic at home. https://www.d2l.org/
We look forward to seeing our families at tonight's Jogathon celebration where we'll be unveiling our total amount raised from this year's fundraiser. Thank you for generously supporting our students, teachers and this exceptional place for learning!
