It is important to review the safety procedures at your school a few times a year. This includes reminding staff and teaching students about the procedures, and practicing lockdown drills, fire drills and disaster drills. Each school and district is different, so your procedures will vary, but there is one constant thing to remember: all threats should be taken seriously.
To learn more about responding to threats, check out our past posts on Managing Threats: Preventing Violence and Creating Safe Schools from Dr. Geoff Colvin. Review your safety procedures to see if they are in place or if they need adjustment.
