School Safety

The Conwell-Egan Catholic High School community centers itself around three core values: Character, Excellence, and Commitment. With a focus on these core values, our Handbook strives to create a culture of respect and accountability while cultivating leaders, inspiring scholars, and serving God.

All consequences for infractions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and all disciplinary decisions will be made at the discretion of the Conwell-Egan Catholic administration.

FIRE DRILLS

Conwell-Egan Catholic High School organizes monthly fire drills throughout the school year to ensure that all students, faculty, and staff are aware of exit and evacuation procedures.
 

  • In the case of a fire emergency, all students and personnel should exit the building quickly and quietly.
  • Leave all belongings behind.
  • Exit the building at the nearest door and move towards the soccer field (field to the left of the building if facing the front of the CEC school building).
  • Do not block the path of travel of emergency vehicles.
  • Students line up alphabetically, by homeroom.
  • Homerooms are marked along the curb.
  • Office runners should report to their homerooms.
  • Once attendance has been taken and all students, faculty and staff members have been accounted for, a member of the administration will dismiss faculty, staff and students back to the building to quietly return to class.
A.L.I.C.E.

Conwell-Egan Catholic has recently adopted a new strategy for lockdown procedures known as the A.L.I.C.E. plan. A.L.I.C.E. is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. Prior to the A.L.I.C.E. plan, lockdown procedures involved the staff locking their doors, moving the students to a part of the room where they could not be seen, and quietly remaining there until an “all clear” announcement was given. The A.L.I.C.E. plan offers a different philosophy. The philosophy of A.L.I.C.E. is to use technology and information in a way so that staff and students can make informed decisions in a crisis, remove as many people as possible from the danger zone, and provide realistic training so that those involved in a crisis have a better chance of surviving. With the use of Title II Funding, Conwell-Egan Catholic High School was able to secure the funds for training the entire faculty and staff in A.L.I.C.E. techniques, and we are now proud to call ourselves an A.L.I.C.E. certified school.

Students need reminders of safe practices in order for them to make good decisions related to their personal safety. We face the reality that there is no perfect plan, but we can improve our safety practices as a community to create a safer school environment. Information regarding the A.L.I.C.E. plan can be found on the A.L.I.C.E. website at https://www.alicetraining.com/. Please feel free to contact the Assistant Principal for Student Life with any questions or concerns regarding the A.L.I.C.E. safety plan.
