Lockdown Drill 2/16/23

On Thursday, February 16th, CRHS will conduct a lockdown drill. Lockdown is one of the five crisis responses we employ in the event of an emergency. Once the drill is announced, teachers will lock their classroom doors, turn off the lights and move students to an area of the room out of sight of the door. The drill will last approximately 7 minutes. Teachers will explain the drill to students beforehand to make sure they know what to do. Any concerns or questions can be directed to CRHS administration. For more information on crisis drills, visit
