Blood Drive

The blood drive was held at the Middle/High School on Thursday, March 1st and was a huge success. Mrs. Snyder and members of student council did an excellent job organizing the drive. The Blood Center set our school goal at 88 donations.  We ended up with 93 donations.  Next year we are planning to host two blood drives.

 

March 14, 2018

Just a reminder that the district is planning an intruder drill with students on March 14, 2018 as well. Prior to the drill teachers will prepare students as we do any other safety drill (fire, tornado).  There will then be an announcement that the school is having an intruder-lock down drill.  Staff and students will be directed to secure themselves in the classrooms.  After the drill, staff will discuss with students what to do during a potential intruder situation and answer student questions.  Our goal is to express to student that we will do everything in our power to keep students safe.  We will invite local law enforcement to be present. The district is also planning additional intruder-lock down drills.  The details for those drills will be planned and shared at a future date. Once students and staff have developed a comfort level with these types of drills, the district will conduct unannounced drills just like we do with fire drills.

 

Additionally, there will be an assembly provided in conjunction with the Williams Bay Police Department. The assembly will take place after the intruder drill. The focus of the school assembly will be how can our students help insure we have a safe and secure learning environment at Williams Bay Middle/High School. Williams Bay Police Chief Chris Severt will share with students things they can do to help lessen the possibility of school violence. He will also share information about the P3 Tips program, which allows students to anonymously report drugs, weapons, bullying, theft or other criminal offenses directly to law enforcement. He will also take time to answer students’ questions about what they should do in the event of an intruder at school.

Backpacks – High School

After numerous conversations with the high school staff and in conjunction with efforts to improve school safety, the Williams Bay staff has decided to implement a policy beginning in the 2018 – 2019 that does not allow students to carry backpacks into the classrooms. Teachers feel this improves the ability for them to move about the classroom and the general safety of the classroom environment. This policy was implemented in the middle school at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year and will be implemented with all students in September 2018.
