For some, lockdowns can be very stressful and nerve-wracking. It’s important for us all to be knowledgeable of what to do in case we continue to have these lockdowns. As a community, we all should have the ability to feel safe and comfortable at our school, free from worry. It’s important for schools to provide clear and concise guidelines for what to do during a lockdown, including how to lock doors and windows, turn off lights, and remain quiet.

It’s also important for individuals to take personal responsibility for their safety and well-being. This can include staying informed about current events, being aware of emergency exits, and having a personal plan incase of an emergency. By working together as a community and taking steps to prepare, we can reduce fear and anxiety during lockdowns and feel more confident and secure in our schools. Remember, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Lockdown procedures are posted in every classroom.

  1. Remain calm and alert during both the Secure and Lockdown procedures. Lockdowns are known to heighten/trigger a variety of emotions so stay aware of anyone needing extra support.
  2. Enter the nearest classroom If a lockdown has just started and you are out of your current classroom for any reason (call slip, restroom, etc.).
  3. Wait 15 minutes after a lockdown has started before contacting your parents. This should allow some time for school personnel to monitor the situation.
  4. Communicate with parents to NOT call the school, a teacher, you, or the Chico PD during a lockdown. All phone lines must be kept open for vital communications.
  5. Ensure all blinds are closed and help your teacher should you see them start to barricade the classroom door.
