Superintendent's Message

Greetings from Mrs. McLean - February 2020

Greetings, RSU # 71 Communities,    📢 

RSU # 71 has become an ALICE-certified school district during the 2019-2020 school year. ALICE is an acronym for "Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate" and is a methodology that empowers people to make good survival decisions should a school attack occur. 

This spring Parent Nights will be scheduled to inform parents and the community about the ALICE approach after which students will be trained in ALICE protocols. The program will walk a family or community member through the ALICE proactive strategies and answer frequently asked questions.

Family and community awareness module is an online learning that shows anyone that registers what ALICE is, how it is being taught in the schools of your district and how to talk to their kids about it. Click here for more information an ALICE and a link to a parent information page on the ALICE training website.

As always, please feel free to be in touch about all matters large and small.
