School Safety Update
School Safety Update
During the month of August, Mercer County Schools will be teaching students situational awareness and ways to respond during emergencies.  Students will practice their response for the following types of emergencies: severe weather, fire, earthquake, intruder in the building (lockdown), and chemical spills.  We have students practice their response prior to an actual emergency to allow us the opportunity to answer any questions and to address concerns. When we have these drills, we ask our local emergency responders to participate with us and provide us with suggestions on how to improve.  When the emergency responders come to observe our drills, you may see multiple emergency response vehicles at the schools.      Read More
