Intruder Alert Drill English

Hello Families! 

In accordance with Governor Kemp’s School Safety Act that became law on June 1, 2023, we will be conducting an intruder alert drill this month.  In preparation for this drill, we will be talking with students about what to do should we ever need to protect ourselves from an intruder on our campus. 

Keeping your child safe at school is of the utmost importance to us at the Georgia School for the Deaf. In our efforts to do this, we conduct a variety of monthly drills, train our staff, regularly review our safety practices, and collaborate with our local first responders and other community partners to ensure that our facilities and protocols meet high safety standards.  One significant change we made over the summer was the addition of Code Red Guard Access Control Devices on all of our campuses (ask your student about the Red Box).  These devices, installed on classroom doors as well as other strategic locations, allow us to effectively lockdown from an intruder in just seconds. 

You can learn more about Code Red Guard devices on their website:

If you have any questions about the safety and security of our campus, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
