STAFF DEVELOPMENT TRAINING TAKING PLACE ON 10/6/17
Over the past three months, BHS and the La Verne Police Department have been coordinating a staff training drill focused on an active shooter on campus to take place today, October 6th from 8-11 AM. While this training comes in the wake of such a tragic event in Las Vegas, we feel it is imperative to continue to train for these types of scenarios to ensure we provide the safest learning environment for all of our Students and Staff at Bonita High School. There will be a Police presence on campus today, but please remember that they are only here for the drill. Thank you very much. – Mr. Kenny Ritchie, Principal.
