Safety

A.L.I.C.E.

Providing a safe and secure learning environment for students is of great importance in the Weed Elementary School District. The district has numerous practices, procedures and protocols in place each day to ensure a safe learning environment. The district has adopted the safety protocol called ALICE. ALICE is a protocol which enhances our previous lock down procedures. The U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other educational leadership and governmental agencies have recommended that school districts develop a protocol that provides options to students and staff when facing threat or harm from an intruder.

ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. ALICE empowers staff to exercise options in the event of such an incident, based on real-time information gathered during the incident. This enhanced protocol does not dictate to staff or students how they should react, but instead provides options for action in addition to the traditional lockdown.

Should you have any questions, you are encouraged to contact Weed Elementary School.

In the event of an emergency please remain calm.  W.E.S.'s main focus is each and every child's safety!
