Riverdale staff will participate in an active shooter training and drill on their first in-service day of the 2016-2017 school year, the Riverdale School Board learned at their regular monthly meeting Aug. 8.
Muscoda Police Chief Bill Schramm will spend the morning of August 29th going over response procedures with staff and will then return in the afternoon with additional police and possibly emergency staff to run through the drill.
The drill will give the school district a chance to make sure their new cameras are properly adjusted before students arrive on campus to begin the school year.
