Take Aways:

  1. The value gained from an unannounced drill does not outweigh the potential emotional harm in our teachers, students, staff members, and parents.
  2. Instead of not announcing the drill, give it a time limit.
  3. By establishing a time limit in which all teachers must have their critical tasks completed, you still create a feeling of urgency without the undue emotional stress
