Secure School - emergency procedure
Reasons for initiating Secure School
What happens in the classroom
Teachers reassure students that there is no imminent threat inside the school and that they are safe while they remain inside the classroom.
If a student has an urgent medical or biological need, teachers will call the main office to ask for help from an available staff member. This staff member will bring food to the classroom if needed, or escort students to the washroom.
Communicating with parents
Students are not allowed to leave the building. Parents, students or outside visitors will not be allowed to enter the school. Parents will receive an email and/or phone call indicating that a Secure School has been initiated. Another message will be sent out once it has ended. If the situation changes to an active threat where serious injury or death is imminent or occurring, Lockdown procedures will be initiated.
