On Jan. 20, Southmont Schools began teacher/staff training, at the high school level, on the A.L.I.C.E. system for handling a violent intruder situation.  A.L.I.C.E. stands for ALERT – LOCKDOWN – INFORM – COUNTER – EVACUATE.  Southmont has designated the month of January as ‘teacher/staff A.L.I.C.E. training month’ and the month of February is dedicated to student training.  A.L.I.C.E. training at the student level has been designed to be age appropriate for each educational level.  If parents or community members have any questions regarding the A.L.I.C.E. Training Program please contact Southmont Schools Resource Officer Jennifer Griffith-Watson at (765) 866—0350, ext. 360.


  • A.L.I.C.E. is a program designed to give you empowerment and options to survive an active violent intruder.
  • The purpose of A.L.I.C.E. is to save as many lives as possible and to give you the best chance at survival.

The A.L.I.C.E. Program is not meant to change everything, but to enhance the schools current policy and give Options of Response in various scenarios.
