This past Monday, Freshmen attended a school safety session that focused primarily ALICE which is NDA’s response to an active threat situation. The ALICE program defines response options during active threat situation and mentally prepares our school community to respond in ways that will increase chances of survival.
ALICE is one part of our school’s comprehensive safety program and stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. If an internal threat exists, NDA will go into lockdown and all will employ ALICE. If evacuating the building, students, faculty and staff should report to one of two Rally Points — VonLehman or Ft. Mitchell Garage. From there, busses will transport them to NDA’s Family Reunification Center where parents/guardians or emergency contacts will be permitted to pick up their daughters.
