CAMBRIDGE — Dorchester County Public Schools is moving into the next phase of implementing the ALICE protocol (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) for school safety by hosting a series of Family Nights during which school administrators will discuss how the ALICE curriculum and age-appropriate training will be presented to students.
