Lockdown Practices at DGH

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH students will be involved in a number of “Lockdown” (Code Red) Practices throughout the year.  In a Lockdown Practice, students are taught find a safe location in which to stay while the Lockdown has been announced.  Lockdown announcements are usually announced over the school’s PA system.  A typical Lockdown announcement would be “Staff and students we have a Lockdown situation.”

 

A Lockdown might be announced if there was a danger in the school or local area.

 

The goal in practising Lockdowns is that students know exactly what to do should a Lockdown be announced.  Should your child come home and have questions or concerns regarding Lockdown practises (or his/her involvement in one) please discuss this with him/her and always feel free to contact the school if you require further information.
