Dear Parents and Guardians,
All of us at Talley Middle
School hope to never encounter a dangerous intruder on our campus or find our
staff and students in the middle of an active shooter scenario. However, to
ensure that we are prepared for the unexpected situation, it is important that
we practice our Intruder Drills each year. Much like a fire drill, students
will become familiar with this procedure with practice. In our planning related
to school crisis scenarios, we have tried to anticipate every possible type of
event that can occur at our school. This advanced planning allows us to feel
confident that we are prepared for any possible scenario.
As part of our Comprehensive
School Safety Plan, Talley Middle Schoolwill practice our annual
Intruder Response Drill on Friday,1.29.16. The Intruder drill/exercise
is based on plausible scenarios in order to set objectives that effectively
measure our school’s ability to respond to a threat inside the school. We wanted to inform you on the
purpose of this drill and ensure you that our number one goal is the safety of
our students in these unforeseen situations. If you have any questions, please
feel free to contact the school at 302-475-3976.
Mark Mayer, Acting Principal Talley Middle
