Safety Drills

Our school is expanding the safety program to include the Standard Safety Response Protocol - Extended (SRPx). The SRPx is based on these five actions:

  • Lockout
  • Lockdown
  • Evacuate
  • Shelter
  • Hold

In the event of an emergency, the action and appropriate direction will be called on the Public Address System.

Students and staff will be trained and the school will drill these actions over the course of the school year.

Safety Drills During COVID-19

The state emergency orders have not relieved the requirement for drills; they are still required if students are in attendance in schools.

The goal of a drill is to show staff and students what needs to be done in that emergency.

  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, drills may be performed slower to accommodate physical distancing.
  • While drills may be done slower, please keep in mind that during real emergencies with a threat to health and safety, the immediate threat must be addressed first.
  • Physical distance and masking are secondary to protecting lives and preventing injury.
