Indian Lake Schools started the New Year by breaking out some new training. 
Staff members returned to school on Friday, January 3rd for a professional development day. 
The morning began with a refresher on the R-Factor, paying special attention to the Step Up category. Staff members broke into groups and played a "Break Out" escape game employing many of the skills already learned in continuing R-Factor education. 
Overall Break Out Team winners were:
1st place (tie):
Lindsay Ross, Liz Wolf, Ron Borgerding, and Marna Salmons
Ryan Lillard and Zack Dunn
2nd Place (tie):
Abbie Roe, Kristen Soos, Elaine Jacobs, Jana Core, and Justin Metzger
Lindsay Imm, Bev Dysert, Jill Onyema, Greg Tuttle, and Valarie Rapp
3rd Place:
Tina Oakley, Rich Yocum, Zach Overturf and Kate Beam

Later, staff members returned to their buildings for additional training, including Stop the Bleed emergency instruction. Each Indian Lake classroom is equipped with a bleeding control kit. In addition, each school has BITT Kits to help in case of an emergency. Experts say bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death after a serious injury.
