Safety/Security--Building, Students, Staff

From time to time it may become necessary to evacuate the building or conduct a “lock down” in response to a real (or practice) emergency situation. During a “lock down” situation, teachers would be instructed to lock their classroom doors and no one would be permitted to enter or leave until the administration gave the okay. Under this situation, all bells are to be disregarded, no passes given, and no phone calls permitted. In either an evacuation or a lock down, students are required to comply and fully cooperate immediately with any and all instructions given by the teacher or from the P.A. No exceptions!

Situations where the above procedures are to be followed include:

  1. Practice fire drill (evacuation)
  2. Actual fire threat or bomb threat (evacuation and/or lock down)
  3. Power outage or gas leak (evacuation and/or lock down)
  4. Tornado drill/warning (proceed to designated shelter area)
  5. Terroristic threat (evacuation and/or lock down)

The above situations involve potential or real threats to human safety. Any student or staff member who does not follow directives at this time will be considered insubordinate and will be disciplined appropriately.
