ALICE Drill at WHS on Monday 4/10/23

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Next week Weston High School will be participating in ALICE drills.  School Resource Officer Andrew Gribbons will be conducting these drills on Monday, April 10, 2023. Weston High School held an ALICE training for all students on February 9, 2023.  Each school in the district has been/will be holding similar safety drills this year.  Families from all five schools have been invited to a number of forums to ask questions and learn more about ALICE. Additionally, the Weston High School staff participated in a refresher training this year led by Officer Gribbons. The schedule for Monday April 10, 2023 is below.

As a reminder, ALICE is an acronym that directs students and teachers on how to act if ever found in a hostile environment:

 A – Alert

L – Lockdown

I – Inform

C – Counter

E – Evacuate

We want you to be as informed as possible for this drill and state that students/families may choose to opt-out of this exercise. If you would like more information about how to opt-out, please call the main office at (781)786-5802.

If you have any questions about the ALICE Drill please contact the school and ask for Assistant Principal Jennifer Knight.  Ms. Knight will be happy to answer any questions and/or concerns. 

Thank you,

Weston Public Schools Safety Team
