All Old Colony staff and students participated in a full ALICE practice drill today (either lock-down/shelter-in-place/barricade or evacuated and reunified outside the building). This drill was led in partnership with the Rochester Police Dept. and two certified trainers employed at Old Colony RVTHS. The ALICE training offers school districts options that mitigate liability, assume less risk, and most importantly, equip the staff and students with life-saving skills.
