We want to let our families know that Gardner-Dickinson practiced a lock down drill the morning of Oct. 4. The drill was completely precautionary and provided us an opportunity to practice keeping our students safe in the event of an emergency. We would like to thank the North Greenbush Police Department for their assistance with the drill. Here is a parent letter with more details about drills we practice that will be going home today.
