Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families, teachers, administrators, and students in Florida who are dealing with the terrifying events that happened yesterday.
We regularly schedule lockdown and fire drills at Pine Glen in coordination with the Burlington Police and Burlington Fire departments. Pine Glen was scheduled to have our lockdown practice today. I have decided to reschedule the lockdown drill.
Teachers continue to regularly review and practice our Standard Response Protocol. We are fortunate in Burlington to have excellent communication with the police and fire departments who, like our teachers, care deeply about all our students.
