Alice Drill Thursday, 3/28

Dear Seward Middle and High School Families.

We will conduct a school-wide ALICE Training with students and staff on Thursday, March 28. This training will be facilitated by Principal Henry Burns and supported by Seward Police Department. It is important that parents are fully aware of this impending drill as students have the capacity for instant communication with their personal electronic devices. It is also important to emphasize that our training is age appropriate.

ALICE offers a list of options that can be used to stay safe in the highly unlikely event of a violent intruder. The ALICE Training Institute is changing how schools respond to armed intruders. ALICE is a set of proactive strategies that increase chances of survival during an armed intruder event, reports the ALICE Training Institute website. While no one can guarantee no casualties or injuries, we can guarantee that passing on knowledge will empower people with options of survival.  The ALICE training program is designed to supplement current Lock-Down or Secure-in-Place procedures used frequently in public schools.

If you have any questions or concerns, the staff and administration at Seward High School or Seward Middle I  encourage you to review the ALICE Training Institute website at
