On January 28th, there was a lock-down drill during the first block of the B Day. Everything seemed under control to the majority of classes, but not all of the classes were taking the precautions that they should have been.

Some classes weren’t following the directions of the drill. The protocol wasn’t being followed completely. All classes are to participate in the Lock-down drills, as it helps to prepare if a real safety emergency erupts unexpectedly.

What also caused the lock-down to need a redo was the number of students not following directions, for example, some students were still walking in the halls during the procedure, and some students were being very loud, as they were supposed to be completely silent.

Teachers received an email stating how there will be a lock-down redo. Mrs. McPherson, an English teacher said: “Some students were still walking in the halls during the lockdown, which they were not supposed to do”. Students are to report to the nearest classroom and join that class for the lockdown.

Students and teachers should sit in their classroom and not be seen through the classroom door window. Everyone should remain quiet. Lock-down drills are supposed to be a surprise, too. Teachers should ensure their students won’t be loud in the classroom and walking in the halls.
