We want to share with you some important information that we have recently received from the Rhode Island State Fusion Center (RISFC), the Middletown Police Department and recent local news reports. According to their report, there have been several hoax phone calls delivered to schools across southeastern New England indicating that a school intruder event is either about to happen or is actively in progress. We are sending this message to prepare our school community in the event that any Middletown School receives one of these calls. Please remember that if a call like this, real or fake is received, our district protocol is that the building will immediately go into "Active Lockdown." This means that doors will be locked, blinds will be closed, and ALICE protocol will be followed. Students and faculty should be dispersed throughout the school and prepared to react. Doors will remain locked and closed and students/faculty/staff should remain quiet until an announcement is made indicating that the Lockdown has ended. The Middletown Police Department will work with us through any safety situation. We willdo our best to communicate immediately about such an event. Safety is our number one priority. Thank you for your support. Encourage everyone, “If you see (hear) something, say something.” Should you have any questions, concerns, or need further information, please do not hesitate to reach out to building administration or Middletown Police. Thank you for your cooperation. Rosemarie K. Kraeger, Superintendent of Schools Anthony M. Pesare, Chief of Police
