The Grand Escape
The Grand Escape
Freshmen students participated in an escape room to become acclimated to their high school library.  Working in groups, students had a class period to make The Grand Escape.  By following clues, searching for books, and solving puzzles, students gained codes to eventually lead them to unlocking the combination lock, thus making their escape.  Not only did they develop skills in using the online catalog and locating a variety of books, they also utilized skills in communication, teamwork, collaboration, and problem-solving. 
PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JOINT PRESS RELEASE
September 3, 2019
 
Dear Citizens and School District Community,
 
The Defiance Police Department and Defiance City Schools prioritize student safety. Ohio law requires schools to complete three (3) school safety drills annually. Ohio law also requires a Full Scale Functional Drill every three (3) years. A Functional Drill entails great planning and coordination with law enforcement, fire and rescue, school officials and numerous other agencies. A Functional Drill could involve: evacuation, shelter-in-place, transportation to another location and reunification with families. This year we will be conducting a Functional Drill. This drill is an excellent training exercise for all agencies involved in the unlikely event of a true emergency. The Functional Drill will take place on Thursday, September 5, 2019. This drill will enable all schools within the district to participate and engage in meaningful school safety protocols and procedures. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Robert Morton, Superintendent 
Defiance City Schools
