May 15, 2015
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Your child’s safety and security is a primary concern for all of us at Torrington Public Schools. In collaboration with the Torrington Police Department and Fire Department, TPS will be conducting evacuation and lockdown drills in the coming weeks. These drills will be unannounced with no warning provided beforehand, and each school will be participating on different days and at a different time of day.
Each drill will be a training exercise for the school, the Police Department, and the Fire Department. Once the exercise commences, a Power Announcement (an email and telephone message from TPS) will be sent out to all parents and guardians of students attending the school where the drill is being conducted that day. This announcement will verify that the exercise is only a drill.
These drills are mandated by the State of Connecticut and are part of the Torrington Public Schools Safety and Security Plan. A plan is only as good as it is implemented properly, and such a plan must be practiced to be implemented correctly at the time of an emergency. These drills will ensure that all our schools are prepared to secure the safety of students and staff in the event of a true emergency.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Cheryl F. Kloczko
Superintendent for Torrington Public Schools
Special Note: "All schools will have an early dismissal for professional development on one Thursday per month. The students' school year is extended by 1 day to provide the required hours of instruction".
