Penn Hills Spotlight

Penn Hills School District Recognized for Following Best Practice in School Safety Drills
"In the Penn Hills School District, lockdowns are tailored for each grade.
“You may have students in the hallways that are unsupervised where something could occur,” Linton Middle School Principal Katie Friend said. “I want students to know they have choices.”
But things are much different at the elementary school.
“Whereas I have teachers that might have 25 little babies with them, Penn Hills Elementary School Principal Kristin Brown said. “We don't want to scare them.”
The principals admit their multi-pronged approach is still a work in progress, but it's one doctors say is the best way to protect students physically and mentally."  -- Erin Clarke of WPXI Pittsburgh
