An Important Message

Dear Otto-Eldred Parents/Guardians, 

On Monday, October 15, 2018, the Otto-Eldred School District will be conducting a required lockdown drill in each building. Local law enforcement will be on site to assist with the drill and help school personnel debrief on the effectiveness of established protocols. The drills will take place as follows: 

  • High School: 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. 
  • Elementary School: 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. 

We will not permit entry into the building to anyone during the lockdown drill, and we will not take any phone calls during this time. Please plan accordingly. 

Keep in mind this is only a drill. The intent is to review procedures with students and provide them with a better understanding of how to stay safe in a true emergency. This is an educational activity, and we will make every attempt to reduce any fear and anxiety that may arise. Our goal is to promote confidence and understanding. Please take the next few days to discuss school safety with your child and emphasize the importance of practicing safety procedures. We greatly appreciate your support.

If you have any questions regarding these drills, please feel free to contact a building principal or Mr. Splain. We are happy to answer your questions.
