Del Norte High to Hold a Lock Down Drill Tomorrow
Del Norte High School will hold a lock down drill starting at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
From an email from Principal Alison Eckart:
Tomorrow, June 9 at 8:30 am, I will announce a lockdown drill--this is a lockdown drill, not an active shooter drill. There will be no bells.
Teachers and staff will:
- Upon locking the outside of your door, "sweep" kids in the hallway into your safe classroom. Lock your room.
- Take attendance.
- Shut all blinds/cover windows
- Remain calm and tell students to "hide" in the safest place in your room away from windows.
- Instruct students to remain quiet.
This is a drill and we will be evaluating 3 things:
1- locked doors
2- quiet rooms
3- ability to see into the rooms and see students
An admin or our SRO will announce themselves and unlock your door announcing the end of the drill.
