Quaker Valley leaders alert parents, community of planned drill

Thursday, April 10, 2014, 6:57 p.m.

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 .
