Lockdown Procedures (Threatening Intruder)

STAFF will indicate LOCK DOWN

I. Clear all hallways immediately. Students outside of classrooms should try to reach a classroom or an office. Close all the doors and lock if possible. Install the door club (hanging on back of doors) on doors that open to the inside. Turn off the lights and close any blinds or drapes. Stay away from any windows. People should sit quietly on the floor, out of the line of sight to a potentially threatening individual who could be inside or outside the building. Once a door has been locked, it cannot be unlocked until a credible person provides staff with the "Cancel Code One" signal followed by a code. Students or staff who gets caught outside of classrooms will need to find the nearest office, room or any place available to hide.

2. It is critical to stay each room until a credible person informs you that the danger has passed and advises you on how to exit safely. The "Cancel Code One" signal followed by a code known to staff will come from a credible person.
