John F. Kennedy Bulletin


December 18, 2019

Early tomorrow afternoon, a few minutes before 2 p.m., I will direct school staff to conduct what is known as a “lockdown” drill. Please be assured that this is only a drill, and there is no actual threat to the school. As is typical, those in the surrounding neighborhood may hear the alarm, which may run for up to 15 minutes. 

Law enforcement has been notified, and I have requested that they assist in evaluating the school’s response.

No drill can completely prepare us for the many “what ifs” that exist, but it is important that we practice basic and appropriate response.  No matter the scenario, please remind your student to always take school alarms seriously.

Should you have questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (916) 395-5090.
