Great Royal Parents,

We want to make sure to give you a "heads up" about a very important event planned for sometime today (Wednesday), Thursday, or Friday of this week!
It is vital that our school personnel and students are prepared for all types of emergency situations.  We practice various "drills" throughout the school year.  A PRACTICE drill will take place during the next 3 days which is a LOCKDOWN DRILL.  Lockdown drills involve an intruder being INSIDE the school building, or an emergency situation taking place INSIDE the building.  We will facilitate this PRACTICE drill during a class change so as to better prepare personnel and students as to proper procedures during a "class break" during the school day.  Teachers have reviewed with students the proper actions to take in regard to this type of scenario (via a Powerpoint presentation & instruction) on Monday, Nov. 30th. 

Roy High School, 2150 West 4800 South, Roy, Utah 84067 801-476-3600
