Bunker Hill CUSD #8 is committed to providing the safest possible environment for our students and staff by taking proactive steps in securing our schools. We want to ensure they have a safe place to learn, work and grow. To maintain our safety standards and adapt to the societal threat of a violent intruder inside our school, we are adopting ALICE proactive strategies.
In fact, Bunker Hill CUSD #8 will be hosting an on-site ALICE training at Bunker Hill High School this upcoming Thursday, 10/6 and Friday, 10/7. This training will be attended by area law enforcement officials, other area school districts and local responders. All training will occur in a separate hallway (the north hall of BHHS) with students being temporarily relocated for class on Thursday only. The training will consist of classroom presentations as well as some "drills" conducted during the day, separate from the rest of the school. As a result, parents will notice law enforcement and first responder vehicles present at BHHS both days. Parents should be reassured that this training is being conducted in order to provide our families with the safest possible environment for our students and staff.
Our staff will soon be fully trained on the ALICE strategies through online classes and hands-on training with our local ALICE Certified Instructor. We are very pleased with the comprehensive roll-out procedure ALICE Training Institute has in place and believe this is the right choice for our students, staff, schools, and the community. Attached is a flyer describing the training that will be provided for Bunker Hill 8 (and other) staff this year.
