Area School District, like every district in the nation, has spent a lot of
time examining school safety and security over the last several years, and the
district has made investments to help ensure a secure, nurturing learning
of these ongoing discussions the district has held a number of events on school
safety and security. On Wednesday,
November 13, 2019, the Sharpsville Area School District will be offering ALICE
Active Shooter Training to our community.
(which stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter, evacuate), is a training
method that teaches techniques that can reduce injuries and casualties in the
event of an active shooter. ALICE differs from the lockdown/shelter-in-place
approach previously used by many districts, including SASD. ALICE has been
incorporated into our district emergency operations plan.
empowers staff and students to make informed decisions about how to best ensure
their own safety during an active shooter event, especially before authorities
arrive on the scene or when they are not immediately available. More on ALICE
can be found at ALICEtraining.com.
Sharpsville Area School District
places the highest priority on keeping our students and staff safe. While we
hope that our community never has to utilize this training, it is important for
us to be prepared should an unspeakable event take place in one of our schools.
Please consider joining us on
Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 6:00 PM in the High School Auditorium for this
informative and hands on training. Please RSVP by Monday, November 11, 2019 at (724) 962-8300 ext. 4101
