Ensuring the safety and security of all our students is a top priority in the Franklin Public Schools, and that is definitely true here at ECDC. Our first curriculum unit, “Building A Classroom Community,” engages students in making classroom connections, discovering their way around the building and recognizing who works in our school, as well as learning about each other and making friends. Another important lesson that students are learning during this unit is that rules keep us safe, and how important it is to follow teacher directions. Throughout the school year, our staff and students practice safety drills, where following directions and rules are really important, in an effort to prepare for an emergency.
This afternoon, staff and students participated in our first fire drill, working closely with the Franklin Fire Department. Students were clam, followed directions and were safely and quickly evacuated from the building. The Franklin Fire Department will facilitate up to 3 more fire drills over the course of the school year.
Also, on September 20th, working closely with the Franklin Police Department, ECDC will conduct our first of probably 2 Lockdown Drills. Please Click Here for more information on ECDC's approach to Lockdowns and frequently asked questions.
Finally, beginning on October 1st, ECDC will be implementing new check in procedures for all visitors. YOU MUST PRESENT A PHOTO ID to enter the building. Thank you for your continued understanding and support on our quest to ensure your students have a fun, safe learning environment.
