    In the interest of campus safety, we will be conducting a lockdown drill on Thursday morning at approximately 9:35 a.m. Normally we would not announce drills to students and parents so the drill is more authentic, however I felt it important to notify our community in advance so as not to cause any fear or panic. 

    During a drill, school administrators will be walking the halls to check rooms and doors. In the event of a true Lockdown, this will be done by law enforcement or an administrator designee. Prior to this drill tomorrow, staff will spend time in discussion with our student about situations and variables that may arise during a true emergency, and how students should respond.

    Thank you for helping keep Hendrickson as safe as possible and taking this drill and any future drills seriously. I encourage you to have conversations with your child regarding safety at school. If your child is having trouble processing these current events, we encourage you to reach out to their counselor and set up a meeting. The front page of the Hendrickson website has contact information for each counselor and assistant principal.

If you have never been to this game, it is an amazing showcase of all the wonderful talent and gifts our students at HHS and PHS have to offer. I anticipate that there will be a large crowd in attendance and ask that you that you build time into your to arrive safe and on time if you plan on coming to the game.
