Fire Drills and Code Blue practice drills are held periodically during the school year. The purpose of these drills is to prepare children for emergency situations. Fire and Code Blue drills are conducted in conjunction with the Town of Burlington Fire and Police Departments. During the drill, police cars might have their sirens on when arriving at the school. We will be conducting a Code Blue drill this week.
A Code Blue procedure will be used when an intruder or dangerous scenario impacts the safety of the students. During a Code Blue drill teachers have students go to a designated section of the room on the floor and lock classroom doors, and take attendance. Teachers and staff look to make sure all students are away from doors and windows.
