Safety Drill Review

Safety Scenario:


At 9:51 am, a parent enters the building to speak with Mrs. Watt (who is out of the building). After a brief conversation with Lupe, the parent becomes angry and pulls out a knife.


Standard Response Protocol: School should move into a Lockdown Drill.


Announcement: Chime from PA System followed by "Locks, Lights, Out of Sight" (times two)

Alternate: Chime from PA System with NO Announcement (only to be used if an announcement cannot be made)

Safety Measures that MUST Occur:


  1. Assess the situation
  2. Action - run, hide, or fight
  3. Call 911
  4. Communicate - ensure everyone is aware of danger (if possible)


Other Measures:


  1. We will always have two people in the Main Office.
  2. We will use the PA Chime as a distress notification only.
  3. We will keep phone extensions next to all phones.
  4. We will keep classroom doors locked at all times.
