On Monday, September 30, students and staff will participate in the lockdown drill with District Security and the Parker Police. We inform students that if they were not in their classroom when a lockdown was announced they would run to the closest room. If they were in the bathroom, students are told to remain in a locked stall with their feet up. If they are outside they are directed to run away from the school and find a safe spot until a safe person finds them.
When we signal the drill we use a system that immediately informs both the Parker Police Department and the District Security Team. It also announces outside the building that we are in a lockdown. If you are to hear the announcement on Monday afternoon please know that this is a scheduled practice.
