HPA safety plans include procedures for sheltering in place, school lockdown, and evacuation.
The school may go into lockdown when there is a safety threat on campus or close to campus. Our school may be placed on lockdown by law enforcement, school security or a principal.
Depending on the type of threat, the school may go on lockdown or a modified lockdown.
In the event that students and staff must lockdown inside the school, the following procedures will be followed:
During lockdown parents, family, and other visitors are urged not to come to the school until the lockdown has been lifted. No access to the building will be allowed during a lockdown for the safety of everyone inside. Doing so would breach security procedures and potentially endanger anyone inside.
In some cases, lockdowns may only last for a short period. In these cases, the school may contact parents after the fact to avoid unnecessary worry or panic.
An evacuation may occur in the event of a fire, bomb threat, or other safety threat in which it would be safer for students and staff to be out of the building.
If students and staff must evacuate the building, the following procedures will be followed:
