Each of our buildings runs a variety of safety drills throughout the year. From fires to active threat training, our students and staff know how to communicate, follow instructions, and where to go in the event of an actual emergency.
This includes lockdown drills (even reverse lockdowns for when a threat may be inside the building), fire drills, earthquake drills, and more.
Every school is required to conduct no less than one (1) safety-related drill each month when school is in session. They must complete at least three (3) lockdown drills, one (1) shelter-in-place drill, and three (3) evacuation drills in accordance with state fire codes each school year. Schools must document the date, time, location, type of drill, lessons learned, and other pertinent information each time.
The process for responding to drills is standardized across our entire district. Each classroom is provided with specific directions on what to do in the event of an emergency.
