We will be doing drills at the direction of the state moving forward in September. The thought is to start off with drills that allow for social distancing in the beginning of the year such as communication, alert and shelter in place drills. Lockdown and evacuation drills will be decided upon and conducted when the DOE believes we are safe to do so. Fire drills are not required while NJ remains in a state of emergency and therefore will not be conducted until the state of emergency is lifted.
