Carrollton, Ky. — February 21, 2018 — Carroll County Middle School and Carroll County High School students enacted safety drills today to practice for an emergency situation.
These drills were held in conjunction with the Carrollton Police Department.
“We do these drills regularly so that our students understand what to do in an emergency,” said Doug Oak, Assistant Superintendent for the Carroll County School District. “We understand that everyone is concerned about recent events in our state and in our nation. We take student safety seriously, and we are doing everything that we can to increase preparedness. We appreciate the help and guidance we received from the Carrollton Police Department today for these safety drills.”
The district regularly assesses the physical security of its schools and facilities.
This year, the district also added a school resource officer.
“In addition to what we are doing to ensure that students are safe, we also need help from parents and others in the community,” Oak said. “One of our primary goals is to keep parents informed about what is happening in our schools. To help us do that, please avoid spreading rumors on social media. If you have a question, please call one of our schools or the Carroll County Board of Education.”
The district also releases information on its website (carroll.kyschools.us) and Facebook page (Facebook.com/CarrollSchoolsK).
