May 31st Lockdown Drill

posted Jun 2, 2019, 1:28 PM by Brent Hopkins

On May 31st at approximately 1 pm the the school held a lockdown drill. The drill was the second lockdown drill of the year. Students and staff responded quickly.  As is the case with fire drills, we practice lockdown and secure school drills so that the school community is prepared should an emergency situation occur.  

A secure school situation is initiated when there is no immediate threat to students, but it is determined that an emergency measure is necessary. During a secure school situation students continue their routines within a locked classroom. If the threat to student safety is active and more imminent the protective action of a school lockdown is required. This enables the school to best protect occupants by isolating the maximum number of students, staff and visitors from danger.

During a lockdown students remain in their current classroom. School staff follow preset instructions to lock doors, turn out lights and move students out of the line of sight of doors and windows. Students in hallways move to the nearest classroom. All activities cease and the school remains in lockdown mode until Ottawa Police determines it is safe to release classes from the lockdown. The school cannot release children to parents during a lockdown.

The lockdown is a proven police and emergency response to protect students and staff from harm by creating safe places quickly. Should you have any questions relating to today’s drill please do not hesitate to contact the school.
