Today, September 15th, 2017, the staff and students at Sumpter Elementary School participated in a lockdown drill. Students were told by staff that we would be practicing being safe just as we do for other drills, prior to this drill beginning. The purpose of this drill was to prepare our students and staff for any emergency that may occur where it may be necessary for us to lock down classrooms and/or the entire building. We conduct drills because we want students and staff members to be safe as well as to develop an awareness of their roles in these various scenarios. Please contact the office if you have any questions regarding today’s lockdown drill.
