Emergency Drill: On Wednesday, Jan. 31st. We conducted a lockdown drill. The Winchester Police Department oversaw the drill. It lasted about 12 minutes and was quite successful. We learned a few things that we could improve upon which was very helpful.
Basketball: Our boys and girls basketball teams have had a very successful season this year. Their season wraps up this weekend at The South Meadow Blue Winter Slam Tournament.
Thank you for taking the time to review this Newsletter.
