Lock-downs

What is a lockdown and what should I do if I am notified my student's school is in lockdown?

A lockdown is a method of securing the school campus when there is an unidentified intruder, emergency or event in the immediate area where the school campus may be at risk. Most lockdowns occur as a result of police or emergency activity in neighborhoods around the school and are used to ensure that the activity cannot cross into the school campus.

If you are notified that a school is in lockdown please do not go to the school. The doors will be secured and cannot be opened until the area has been declared safe, and visitors may interfere with emergency response and how quickly the campus can be restored to normal operations. Instructions for parents will be provided through the District's emergency notification system. If your child needs to be picked up from school, this system, public media and news outlets will provide the details and locations for reunification.
