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. This follows almost two years of DCPS staff training, in conjunction with law enforcement, to help prepare for and respond to a critical violent incident.

The schedule for the Family Nights is as follows:

Monday, Nov. 18, 6 p.m. – Warwick Elementary School, for parents of students at Hurlock, Vienna, and Warwick Elementary

Tuesday, Nov. 19, 6 p.m. – Cambridge-South Dorchester High School, for parents of students attending Mace’s Lane Middle, South Dorchester (grades 6-8), DCTC, and C-SDHS

Wednesday, Nov. 20, 6 p.m. – North Dorchester High School, for parents of students at North Dorchester Middle School and North Dorchester High School

Thursday, Dec. 5, 6 p.m. – Choptank Elementary, for parents of students attending Maple, Choptank, Sandy Hill, and South Dorchester (PreK-5th grade)
