The next lockdown drill will be Wednesday, April 29, 2015.
District regulations specify that in addition to our regular fire drills, we must conduct “lockdown” practices in a school year. A lockdown is employed when an unwanted intruder is in the building. Staff is instructed to lock their door and direct the children to a location in the room that is not visible from the door. We are careful not to scare the children. We will prepare the students before the practice and have class discussions after our lockdown drill. Please discuss the lockdown with your children before and after the event (especially younger children) to help alleviate their possible fears.
