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.
