A NOTE FROM THE ADMINISTRATION
The recent tragedy at the Covenant School in Nashville was a somber reminder of why our school safety and emergency protocols play such a critical role.
On Tuesday, April 4, we performed a regularly scheduled lockdown drill in collaboration with the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department. We perform emergency drills based on best practices and the Ohio Department of Education requirements. We are pleased to report that students and staff followed school protocols. We are grateful for their efforts to test our safety and security procedures. It is unfortunate that we live in a day when such concerns are necessary; however, we will continue to do everything we can to ensure that our school is safe and secure.
Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters at The Covenant School in Nashville.
