School Safety

ALICE and ALICE Training

The North Cape School District updated its safety plan in the Spring of 2017 with the training of several members of the Crisis Team and implemented those changes in the beginning of the 2017-18 school year.   As part of this initiative, the safety protocol called ALICE was implemented in the unlikely event of an armed intruder in one of our school buildings. This training encourages staff and students to respond based on their situation, rather than rely on centralized instructions in dynamic times of crisis.  ALICE is a federally endorsed safety protocol.  We continue to teach and practice ALICE every year as do the surrounding districts.

The letters ALICE stand for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate:

  • Alert – inform people of the threat, giving as much information as possible.

  • Lockdown – Students and Staff can choose to lockdown and barricade the room that they are in if they determine that it is not safe to evacuate.  Safe evacuation is always the best defense.

  • Inform – pass on as much information as possible to others and to First Responders, including contacting 911.

  • Counter – an effort of last resort, if an armed intruder is able to get into the space that they are in; middle school students are encouraged but not required to yell and throw things and then run in an attempt to stop the intruder instead of being passive victims.

  • Evacuate – If it is safe to do so, all are encouraged to evacuate the building, and remove themselves from the threat.  Students have been taught where our rally points are located.  

Under ALICE training, staff and students are oriented to different options to respond to a school intruder who is intent on doing harm. In some cases, the teacher and students might take precautions to barricade the entrance(s) of the classroom. Under certain conditions, it might be the best decision for the teacher and students to flee the building. It is the intention of ALICE that the strategies we provide will increase the chances that our staff and students might survive if a terrible circumstance of an armed intruder ever were to occur.
