From the Falcon’s Nest:

October is safety month at SVHS!  This year we moved our calendar around and conducted our intruder drill as early as possible to better prepare our students and staff for the coming year.  The high school staff worked alongside the Scotts Valley Police and Fire departments in conducting the drill which simulated aspects of a potential real event.  As is our practice our three organization then debriefed with a focus on what we learned about our readiness and where we can improve.  The following day the high school staff conducted further training during their professional development time with a focus on being prepared for an emergency of any kind.
