This is just a drill: First Responder Active Shooter Training at SVHS, June 24-28
Posted 6/23/19

Attention Parents,


Next week from June 24-28 the UC Santa Cruz Police Department is hosting Active Shooter and Casualty Response Training for a large group of county and bay area law enforcement and fire personnel.  This training will occur on the Scotts Valley High School campus and include 'real world' scenarios incorporating non-lethal ammunition and distraction devices.  Volunteers, which include school administrators, will role play to give the simulations a realistic feel.  SVUSD made the effort to host this regional training to provide local police, fire, and school officials with the opportunity to train in our own backyard.


Please know that during this week of training Scotts Valley High School and the neighboring Glenwood Preserve trails will be closed at all times.
