The Bertha-Hewitt School has implemented ALICE training to protect students from a potential school shooting.
The training began in August when Principal Darren Glynn and Shawn Nelson attended a two day program to learn how ALICE works in an active shooter situation.
The previous drills dated back to the 1980s and were designed around drive by shootings. This included locking the door, shutting off the lights, drawing the blinds, hiding and staying quiet. What Nelson and Glynn learned was that the outdated drills turn students into easy targets for a shooter. . .
