Police to conduct active shooter training Aug. 17 and 31

The Olympia Police Department will conduct an active shooter training on August 17 and August 31 at the school district’s John Rogers Building, a facility on 26th Avenue Northeast that formerly housed the Olympia Regional Learning Academy and John Rogers Elementary School.

The routine annual in-service training for Olympia Police Department patrol officers will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.

The John Rogers campus, located at 2001 26th Ave. N.E., will be closed with signs around the property clearly notifying people that police training is underway. Olympia police plan to hold most of the practice inside of the building with little of the activity visible to the public. Police report the tools they will use are not expected to cause any alarming noises. An occasional loud voice may be heard by adjacent neighbors, and several police patrol vehicles will be in the building’s parking areas.

Any questions about this training may be directed to Olympia Police Lt. Paul Lower at 360-753-8410.

Welcome

The Options Program at Lincoln School offers an alternative approach to elementary education that is a choice for students in the Lincoln Service Area and from the Olympia School District. The program provides a unified model for grades K-5 that respects how children learn and views learning as a collaborative effort of staff, students and parents.

The Options Program

  • The emotional and social growth of children and academic progress are equally valued and developed in an environment where differences and diversity are appreciated and respected.
  • Children stay with the same teacher in multi-age classrooms for two years or more to support their learning and strengthen family school relationships.
  • The curriculum is organized around concepts and themes rather than as a series of separate subjects. A variety of experiences acknowledging the many forms of intelligence encourage individual initiative and cooperative learning.
  • Multiple intelligences, cooperation, social justice and sustainability are taught and practiced.
  • Parents are vital to sustaining the Options Program and are involved in governance, as partners supporting learning in the classroom, enrichment activities, field trips, fund raising, and social events.
  • The Options classroom provides a developmentally-based curriculum that takes children from where they are "in total" and gives them opportunities and equipment to move forward at their own rates (in areas of their specific interest), enabling them to acquire life support skills (the basic education) in the process.

A Special Place

The Lincoln Garden, Native Garden, Chickens and Wetland are just a few of the many things that make Lincoln Options special.
