Quaker Valley leaders alert parents, community of planned drill
An evacuation drill will go on as planned Friday at Osborne Elementary School in Glen Osborne, Quaker Valley School District leaders said Thursday.
Administrators typically do not provide early notice of the routine drills, but did so after Wednesday's stabbing incident at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.
“All of the drills that we practice are vital to maintaining a safe and nurturing school community,” spokeswoman Tina Vojtko said in an e-mail. “The purpose of tomorrow's drill is to prepare faculty, staff and students to safely evacuate the building in case of any emergency.”
If parents have questions, they are urged to send an e-mail to Principal Barb Mellett at firstname.lastname@example.org.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
