Dear GEHS Families,
The training of our teachers and students in the ALiCE concepts is an ongoing endeavor. This spring, Mrs. Stear and I are working with the Advanced Health Students on piloting a school-wide training. Our Advanced Health students are regionally renowned for their skill and professionalism at "mock" emergency trainings for fire, police, and emergency personnel. We are putting these students on the forefront of this training for their peers. The students are developing training stations for learning each of the ALiCE concepts in the morning (2nd - 4th Bell). Following the lunch bell, students will "drill" on ALiCE concepts (barricading and evacuation) decision making in a controlled environment (6th Bell).
The attached letter further outlines and provides information which was sent home with students today. Please read, review and return the forms to school prior to this Friday, April 22nd, 2016.

While it goes without saying it is all of our sincerest hope that this training is never needed, rest assured we are devoted to maintaining a safe environment and teaching our children the concepts and strategies that may serve to save their lives.
