What is a Lockdown?

A lockdown is a safety procedure required when there is an intruder in the building, a hostage situation, an armed offender, and/or other life-threatening situations in progress that require the occupants of that building to implement lockdown procedures. When a lockdown announcement is made, all school entry points are locked and no one is permitted entry into or out of the building.
