TFS conducts successful lockdown drill

 
 

Maintaining a safe campus remains a top priority at Tallulah Falls School with a Jan. 31 lockdown drill providing a chance to practice and refine security protocol.

“The drill went well,” said Director of Security Dustin Rogers. “Communication went out to parents in a timely manner and faculty, staff and students did a great job moving to assigned safe spaces.”

“New this year is drone coverage,” Rogers said. “If there is someone on campus, we have the ability to monitor them from a safe distance with the drone.”

President and Head of School Larry A. Peevy was at the upper school to observe the process. Also on hand was new Tallulah Falls Police Chief Tonya Elrod.

“It is vital for our area law enforcement personnel to be familiar with our campus,” Peevy said. “Reviewing every detail is important when it comes to the safety of our students and school employees. We appreciate the partnership we have with the town of Tallulah Falls and other agencies.”

“The school has 24/7 security coverage and these drills are part of the master security plan,” Peevy added.
