At Riverside, we believe in preparing our students and their families about potential school intruders through the book "I'm Not Scared...I'm Prepared" by Julia Cooks. While it is a scary subject, it is also a genuine threat, and students as well as staff deserve preparation. "I'm Not Scared...I'm Prepared!" helps students envision their reaction to an intruder prior to an incident. It will enhance the concepts taught by the ALICE Training Institute, and make them applicable to children of all ages in a non-fearful way. By using this book, children can develop a better understanding of what needs to be done if they ever encounter a "dangerous someone."
Please watch the video and talk to your child about what they have learned if there were an intruder at Riverside.
