Angel Fund

The Angel Fund provides hot meals for students who have no money in their school account regardless of the reason. It is mainly funded through generous donations of the remaining money in closed meal accounts, or by donations made from staff and parents. When a student receives an Angel Meal, a note will be sent home with the child and an email sent from the Food Service Office. If at all possible, we ask that the meal charge be paid back to the Angel Fund so money remains available for other students’ use.

ALICE Practice Drills and Training

Douglas School District will be conducting practice DRILLS and TRAININGS for the ALICE protocol from approximately 2:15 - 2:30.

DSD takes the safety and security of students, staff, and families very seriously. Ongoing through the year we will be teaching students about the ALICE protocol and conducting drills in preparation of any emergency events on one of our district campuses. Please contact Douglas School District if you have any additional questions.

If you have not heard from your child about ALICE training, below is a brief description and website with more information from the ALICE Institute.

ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) Training instructor led classes provide preparation and a plan for individuals and organizations on how to more proactively handle the threat of an aggressive intruder or active shooter event. Whether it is an attack by an individual person or by an international group of professionals intent on conveying a political message through violence, ALICE Training option based tactics have become the accepted response, versus the traditional “lockdown only” approach.
Protection and safety must be the priority in an Active Shooter event or Terrorist Attack. Circumstantial and operational concerns vary in every new situation. ALICE Training provides options and classes that address the unique challenges specific to Police/LE, K-12 Schools, Healthcare Facilities, Higher Education, Businesses, Government, and Houses of Worship.
