WHJSHS Evacuation Drill Scheduled For Monday 11/12/2018

Dear WHJSHS Parents/Guardians:

In an effort to keep all of our children safe, the Woodland Hills School District has adopted the A.L.I.C.E. strategy for lockdown and evacuation procedures. A.L.I.C.E. uses technology and information so that staff and students can make informed decisions in a crisis, remove as many people as possible from the danger zone, and provide realistic training so that those involved in a crisis have a better chance of surviving.

Please read this letter that includes information on an evacuation drill following the ALICE procedures that will take place on Monday, November 12 in collaboration with the Churchill Police Department.
