Safety

School Safety Information

Thank you for your patience and trust during our recent lockout (Wednesday, Jan 7). This is something our school drills and reviews at least three times per year. I am very pleased by the response of the staff and the students when we received notification from the city to put the school in lockout.

Our school is part of an Emergency Preparedness Committee that meets five times per year to review school safety and practice coordinated responses to events/threats. The committee includes members of the City of Shoreline Emergency Planning Office, Shoreline Police, Lake Forest Police, Shoreline Fire, Shoreline School District, Shoreline Christian, Evergreen School, and St. Lukes School.

Did You Know?

I have kind of a funny story for you. Yesterday, a service representative came to switch out our postage meter machine in the office. He replaced it with the same model, but now it’s just a little bit fresher and cleaner. As the rep was showing us a faster way to print international postage, he flipped up a little plastic flap to reveal a keyboard. I gasped. After almost two years of working at the office, I still did not know that machine had a keyboard! Our rep laughed and then showed me another trick to unjam the machine should an envelope get stuck. Good thing I enjoy learning new things!
