Tuesday, November 20, 2012, is Emergency Preparedness Day for Lake Placid Central School’s students. It is also the last day of school before Thanksgiving Break.
All students in the middle/high school will be dismissed at 9:50 a.m. and the elementary school will be dismissed at 10:30 a.m. This will give parents an opportunity to practice making arrangements for the care of their children during the normal school day in the event that there would be an emergency and the school would have to dismiss early.
School districts are required by New York State to hold Emergency Preparedness drills so that parents, staff and students can develop a contingency plan.
