I just wanted to send out a quick note and let you know that Wood Oaks has completed the Lockdown Drill that was scheduled for today. In cooperation with Northbrook Police, we initiated the drill at 9 am. Once Northbrook Police and school administration verified that all students and staff were in secure locations, the drill was ended and students and staff resumed normal morning activities. Everyone involved did a wonderful job of following our emergency preparedness plan and creating a secure environment in a very short amount of time. While it is somewhat saddening that this sort of drill needs to be run at all, it is comforting to know that, in the event of an actual emergency, staff and students have practiced what to do. Thank you for your continued partnership in educating your children to succeed in a changing world. Have a nice day.
