Safety Update
In accordance with our school’s crisis plan, we will be conducting an unannounced emergency drill, during the week of March 13th -17th, in preparation of imminent danger. We will be assisted by Henrico County Police to ensure safety protocol is being met. We consistently practice emergency drills throughout the year to prepare our students and staff, and all are expected to participate. We remain committed to making our school a safe learning environment, and drills like these are essential in making Greenwood as safe as possible.
