Multi-Agency Active Shooter Drill announcement 2

To the Parents and Students of Etowah High School.

On the morning of October 8, 2019, Etowah High School will be the sight for a Multi-Agency Active Shooter Drill. This drill is designed to help prepare our students, teachers, administrators, area first responders, and emergency personnel for an active shooter situation. Every effort will be made to ensure the safety of our students during this drill. Please allow your child to come to school on this day. During the drill, Wood Avenue, Case Avenue, and Jones Street around the high school will be closed to traffic. Please plan anticipated check-outs or late check-ins around the morning of October 8th as these will not be allowed during the drill. Cell and land-based phone use will also not be allowed. The drill is expected to last approximately one hour. Thank you for helping us to better prepare for emergency situations.
