Miller-Driscoll Lockdown Drill To Be Held Tomorrow

Principal Cheryl Jensen-Gerner announced the lockdown drill—which will be held before most students arrive—in an email blast to parents.

Miller-Driscoll will lockdown tomorrow morning before a majority of its students arrive, Principal Cheryl Jensen-Gerner announced Tuesday. 

Jensen-Gerner said sometime between 8 and 8:40 a.m., Miller-Driscoll staff, preschool staff and students in the extended day program will participate in the drill.

"This drill is part of our regular school safety plan and follows a practice that we also had earlier in the year during one of our professional development days," she wrote in an email blast. 

The drill will last no more than 30 minutes, according to Jensen-Gerner, who told parents to drop their kids off before 8 a.m. if they plan to attend the extended day program.

"We are notifying you in advance to ensure that there is no undue concern on your part if you hear that Miller-Driscoll School is in lockdown," she wrote. "Please note that no one will be  allowed into the school when we are in lockdown mode."

Jensen-Gerner said a drill will be conducted with students in the "very near future."

"Prior to that practice we will let you know what to say to students and what day the drill will take place," she wrote.

Jensen-Gerner said parents should contact the school office with any questions.
