School Emergency Response Training & Annual Drills

At Centennial CVI, the safety and well-being of our students is our highest priority. Although we hope that an incident that requires response from emergency personnel will never occur in our school, we must be prepared to respond quickly and effectively in case it does.  Each year our school conducts drills to ensure staff and students are prepared in the event of a real emergency. Our school conducts fire drills, lockdown drills, a tornado drill, and a bomb threat drill. The 2016-17 protocol requires the following number of drills:  Three (3) fire drills in the fall and three (3) fire drills in the spring, Two (2) lockdown drills, One (1) tornado drill, One (1) bomb threat drill.  For each of these drills, there is an education component to explain why they are necessary.  All drills are conducted in a manner that is sensitive to the needs of students.  If you have any questions please contact the school office.
