Act 44 of 2018 Public Notice
In accordance with Act 44 of 2018, which pertains to issues of school safety, the West Branch Area School District has met its obligation to conduct a school security drill within 90 days of the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. In addition to this required drill, the District further conducted a “barricading” drill with students in Grades 3-12 as part of our response to a Violent Intruder crisis scenario. Our School Police Officer participated in this drill as our law enforcement representative and prior notice was issued via the parent notification system. The District will repeat these drills in the spring of each school year in addition to our monthly fire drills and the annual inclement weather drill.
