Under the leadership of Rick Beck of First Energy, volunteers from First Energy, the Boy Scouts, AmeriCorps, and the Civilian Conservation Corps worked on July 18 at Belmont Elementary to paint the fences on the outdoor basketball court and playgrounds as well as paint benches and parking lot lines. The volunteers also cleaned outdoor areas at BES. All supplies, paint, and lunches for volunteers were funded by First Energy, BES's Partner in Education.

New Lockdown Procedure (A.L.I.C.E.)
Pleasants County Schools has adopted a new strategy for lockdown procedure known as the A.L.I.C.E. plan. A.L.I.C.E. is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate.  Prior to the A.L.I.C.E. plan, lockdown procedures involved the staff locking their doors, moving the students to a part of the room where they could not be seen, and quietly remaining there until an “all clear” announcement was given.  The A.L.I.C.E. plan offers a different philosophy in light of school violence.  The philosophy of A.L.I.C.E. is to use technology and information in a way so that staff and students can make informed decisions in a crisis, remove as many people as possible from the danger zone, and provide realistic training so that those involved in a crisis have a better chance of surviving.
