It is necessary from time to time to lock and secure the campus to ensure the security of all staff and students. Our school will follow
two procedures. In case of Code Yellow, students and staff should do the following:
· go into the classroom and lock the door,
· make sure that all exterior doors and windows are closed and locked, and
· remain in the secure location until the all-clear announcement is given.
Teachers and students are to continue with normal classroom activities and should not be alarmed during a Code Yellow. In case of a
more severe emergency, Code Red will be used to communicate the presence of an immediate threat to the school. In this procedure,
students should report immediately to the nearest secure room and follow the directions of the staff member in charge.
