Safety Drill Information

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Various staff members along with Mr. Credle and myself recently participated in an FCPS Tabletop Exercise with members of FCPS Safety and Security and the FCPS Fire Department. We were able to talk through how we would react and lead students and staff through various emergency situations such as Lockdown; Secure the Building; Stay Put, Stay Tuned; and Shelter in Place. Safety drills are reviewed and practiced with students each school year. Did you know that a fire drill is practiced every month and Lockdown Drills are practiced at least four times a year? Later this month, students and staff will be practicing what to do and where to go in a Tornado emergency. We take all practice drills very seriously so that in the case of an emergency, staff and students will be calm and prepared. 

At the end of our two-hour training, Oak Hill was recognized for our preparedness and knowledge of best practices when compared to other schools in the county who have participated in this same exercise. Please take a moment to learn more about each drill listed below or click here to access the FCPS Safety and Security website.

Please let us know if you have any questions that we might be able to answer for you.


Holly DeVore, Principal
