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.
