  CHS will soon be going through its ALICE training and drills to practice how to handle the threat of an intruder.

ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. ALICE training is a more effective way to be prepared in an event of a active shooter.

There have been new improvements to CHS, and Associate Principal Bart Randolph thinks it is safer now than it was 10 years ago.

“We put into place, for safety measures, locked doors monitored by cameras, a privacy wall, and a new office entrance to make it safer,” says Randolph.

The traditional lockdown limited students’ and teachers’ natural instinct to get away from danger and trained everyone to “freeze” as a response.

Deputy Mark Brooks thinks ALICE training is definitely more effective.

“ALICE gives people more options and can change the mindset of people,” says Brooks.

ALICE is not just practiced in schools, it is also practiced in many other places and organization. Brooks believes it helps many.

“ALICE is more of a life skill than just a school skill,” Brooks says.

In case a class needs to evacuate, teachers have different rally points they need to go to. Mrs. Brittany Charek, a teacher at CHS, believes it is important to have a plan of action.

“I think direct communication between the administration and students is important to keep everyone from freaking out,” says Charek.
