• Emergency Drills

    PPS works hard to ensure that all staff and students are trained to respond effectively and efficiently during an emergency at or near school. One of the many ways we accomplish this is through our mandatory drill requirements for schools.  The following drills are conducted throughout each school year:

    • Monthly Fire Drills
    • Two Earthquake Drills
    • Two Lockdown Drills
    • One Secure The Perimeter Drill
    • One Team Response Drill

    These drills are essential in ensuring our school community is as prepared as possible for emergency situations. Whenever possible, schools will conduct drills in partnership with our first responders, police and fire.
