Safety and Security At the beginning of the school year we practiced (drill) the following emergency situations: evacuation (fire drill), hall check, drop-cover-hold, and lock-down. We know that when we practice drills our staff and students are more likely to respond appropriately when there is an actual emergency. The Boise School District Emergency Response effort is consistent across the school district. Each school plan is updated annually and is submitted to the District Safety and Security Supervisor. If you have any questions about our process or procedures, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Page 5 The Howler September 16th, 2016 Walk to School Day!! October 5th, 2016 Meet at the Optimist Fields at 8:30 a.m. and walk together to Shadow Hills with a police escort! Parking Lot and Bus Zone Safety Please help us keep everyone safe by using sidewalks and designated crosswalks when arriving and leaving school grounds. Do not walk between buses or through the bus lane. The bus lane is for buses only. We appreciate your patience in the parking lot as students are being dropped off and picked up before and after school. We encourage you to put your children on the school bus if your students are bus eligible. If you live within walking distance, please encourage your child to walk to school. Neighborhood kids can walk together in a group! This will help parking lot congestion. Please park only in designated parking spots in the parking lot. If you pull up along the red curb (fire lane) to pick up or drop off, you may not leave your vehicle unattended. Please remind your children to walk their bikes and scooters on school property. Thanks for working with us to keep everyone safe!
