On Friday Oct. 25, Clarke students had the day off from school. Eleven middle-school students and Mrs. Danielle Woods came to Clarke Middle School and worked on an ALICE video for the school district. 

ALICE stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evacuate. The idea behind the training is the first people who have to respond to a school shooter are the teachers and students in a school building.

The video will be used as a training tool for the Clarke School District.   

“By coming in on their day off shows the kind of character our students have and how important the program is to them,” said Marcus Kious, Clarke school liaison.

Officer Richard Thomas participated in the video and represented Clarke County law enforcement.
