School safety Training – Notre Dame

“Students at the Academy of Notre Dame recently presented thank you posters to Sgt. Steve Manning and Sgt. Mark Bourque for the officers’ efforts in training and drilling the staff and students at the school in the ALICE Program.  ALICE is the new protocol for schools to go into lockdown procedures if a threat were to enter the school.  The acronym ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate.

In addition to the Academy of Notre Dame, all Tyngsboro Public Schools, Greater Lowell Technical HS, and the Innovation Academy Charter School have received ALICE training.

Additionally, last month the Tyngsboro Police Department conducted Active Shooter drills inside both the Tyngsboro Elementary and Middle Schools when school was out of session.”
