Lafayette will hold several drills this year to help ensure students and staff know what to do in the event of an emergency. These drills include, but are not limited to, fire, tornado and lockdown. Sometimes these drills will be planned and other times we will hold spontaneous drills to assess everyone’s ability to respond quickly to emergencies. For many of our drills we coordinate our efforts with police and fire departments, and we encourage families to talk about emergency preparedness at home.
Please note that if you arrive at Lafayette during a drill, you will be asked to remain outside until the drill concludes. We appreciate your cooperation and apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
To reduce confusion in the event of a true emergency, we will not call or e-mail families when we hold a drill at our school unless there are unusual circumstances. If you have any questions about our efforts to keep our school safe, please do not hesitate to contact the school office at (757) 565-0373.
