I want to thank all students and staff for a successful building evacuation drill, this afternoon! We learned a ton of information which we will utilize to make this process even more efficient and effective in the future! #DiscovererProud
Within the next hour, as part of CHS emergency preparedness planning, students and staff will take part in a building-wide evacuation. The steps we take today are to help ensure students and staff know what to do and where to go in the event that we would be ordered to evacuate our building due to an emergency. The safety of our students and staff are the foremost concern of our administration. There is no cause for alarm as today’s activities are a planned exercise.
