Dear BOBCAT Nation,
Thank you for supporting a successful BOBCAT Safety Week!
Staff and students executed our Secure Campus, Lockdown, Fire/Evacuation, and Drop & Cover drills with the appropriate disposition and sense of urgency. Additionally, our community contributed 74 cases of water that will be used as a water supply in case of an emergency response situation.
Thank you for helping our staff and students be prepared!
