Dear Parent/Guardian –   Beginning next week, Mark Twain Elementary students will begin practice Armed Intruder trainings as well as a one formal training with the Silverton Police Department.  Students will receive lessons with directions and practice exercises on what to do in an emergency event involving an armed intruder.  The formal Armed Intruder Training will involve uniformed police officers interacting with students and staff.  Your child may share these experiences with you at home in the upcoming weeks.  If you have questions, or would like additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.  Thank you, Greg Kaatz, Principal  503-873-6341
