Some Vigo schools out Nov. 12 for safety drills

Several elementary, middle schools to get out early

TERRE HAUTE — Next Tuesday, Nov. 12, the Vigo County School Corp., in cooperation with local police agencies, will conduct school safety drills involving several elementary and middle schools.

The “hostile intruder” drills will require the buildings involved to dismiss school early that day. Elementary schools affected will be dismissed at 1:45 p.m.

Those schools are Davis Park, DeVaney, Franklin, Farrington Grove, Fuqua, Meadows, Lost Creek and Sugar Grove.

If a child normally attends an after-school care program at any of the elementary schools involved, the program will meet that day at 1:45 p.m.

The program is open only to children who normally attend or who are pre-registered through WICAA (Western Indiana Community Action Agency) at 812-232-1264.

The middle schools that are involved, Woodrow Wilson and Sarah Scott, will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m. that day.

Parents of middle school students are asked to make arrangements that day so students are not at the school after dismissal at 2:30 p.m.

The goal is to provide drills of this type for all schools during the 2013-14 school year.

“We are grateful to area law enforcement for their support and cooperation in providing this valuable training for safe and secure schools,” said Ray Azar, director of student services.

He emphasized early dismissal is only for schools participating in the drills, not the entire school district.

“We’re doing this to prepare our teachers and staff who have not already been trained,” Azar said.

 The Vigo County Sheriff’s Department, Terre Haute Police Department and Indiana State Police will participate in the drills.
