During the 2013-14 school year, Woodmore staff and students will be given the tools to protect themselves and save their own lives during a violent situation through ALICE training.

ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. The main goal of the system is to help students and teachers feel empowered and prepared to do whatever is necessary to stay alive when a threat is present. It stresses that traditional lockdown is inappropriate during imminent or life-threatening danger. Instead, those involved are encouraged to run, throw books, barricade the doors and, in an extreme situation, swarm the attacker and disarm him or her.
