Announcements

Cody ALICE Safety Drill: On October 25th, Cody Elementary School  will be conducting an ALICE safety drill.  We encourage you to visit with your son/daughter after the drill to learn about any questions or concerns.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any such information.  The teaching point we ask for you to reinforce with your son or daughter in the context of this drill is the great importance of always reporting any safety concerns they observe or hear about.  Let law enforcement and/or a school official know and let them determine the next best step.  By working together as a community, we can maximize the safety for all.
