ELMIRA, Ore. -- Elmira High School is providing A.L.I.C.E. student safety training Wednesday in an effort to keep all students and staff safe in the event of an armed intruder.
During this school-wide drill, kids will learn how to prepare for a threat of an aggressive intruder or active shooter instead of the traditional "lockdown only" approach.
A.L.I.C.E. stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evacuate.
Earlier this month, parents in Elmira were upset about how administrators handled a threat made at Fern Ridge Middle School.
A student admitted to telling a friend he wanted to "shoot up" the school.
The threat was reported to parents several days later when letters were sent home with students explaining the situation.
This training is to help provide the safest possible environment for students and encourages staff and students to respond based on the situation.
