Hello, this is Rodrick Gray, Principal of Laurel Elementary. I am writing to inform you that today we conducted a lockdown drill at our school.  These training drills are a critical part of our safe schools’ plan and help to prepare our students and staff in case of a real emergency. Again, today’s activity was only a drill.  We take very seriously any threat to providing a safe learning environment as our students’ and staff’s safety is of the highest priority.  We will continue to conduct drills in the future and you will be advised accordingly.
