To Whom It May Concern:
“Approximately at 10:45 a.m., I was asked by the Urbana Police department to conduct a soft lock down because of an occurrence in the neighborhood. We initiated our code red school safety procedures to keep all our students and staff members secured in their classrooms. Learning continued during this code red procedure; we use the emergency procedure when there is a potential threat outside of the school building. We kept in contact with the Urbana Police Department and they notified us when we could end the soft lock down. The code red lasted approximately two hours.
I am very proud of our students for following our school’s expectations today. The students were respectful by listening to directions from adults, and remaining attentive in their classrooms. They showed responsibility by sitting and listening to the announcement from me and directions from their teachers. The students were ready to continue learning after they heard directions from me and their teachers.
Please praise your son or daughter for their exceptional behavior today. They exhibited all three of our school expectations (Respectful, Responsible, Ready).
