Cherokee Elementary to host emergency response community meeting

Cherokee Elementary School is to hold a community meeting regarding ‘Emergency Response Plan and Bomb Threat.’

The meeting is to be 5-6 p.m. on Oct. 28 in the school cafeteria.

“Our school had an eye opening situation this week, and we would like to take advantage of the timing and invite you to learn more about the Emergency Response Plan, drills and trainings that occur to protect our kids during times of crises,” stated a prepared statement in an e-mailed Cherokee newsletter.

The meeting will include action plans for a future crisis and a time will be set aside for community members to share concerns and ideas related to school safety with the Paradise Valley Police Department school resource officer, Kevin Albert and Scottsdale Unified School District Chief Security Officer, James Dorer, stated the newsletter.
