Hamilton County Schools administrators and school resource officers will participate in a mock safety drill at the Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences (CSAS) on East Third Street Monday beginning at approximately 8 a.m. 

 The drill will be conducted in cooperation with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department. 

A large number of public safety vehicles at the school location should not be a cause for concern. 

The activity at CSAS this morning is just a drill to prepare  school administrators, school resource officers, and community public safety personnel in the event a safety issue should arise in a school. 

The drill will help coordinate responses of school and public safety personnel and help to keep children safe.
