A soft lockdown is a short-term measure implemented to isolate students and staff from the non-threatening situation at the school or in the community. Students continue to hold a fairly regular school experience. Outside doors are locked, students are not allowed to go outside, and students may remain in the same class for an extended period. This may happen due to a medical emergency at the school or police activity near the school building.
A lockdown is implemented when an imminent threat is identified on the campus, or the school is directed by law enforcement to implement a lockdown. Staff will secure their classrooms and hold in place until law enforcement gives clearance. No one will be allowed to enter the building during this time.
An evacuation occurs when the building is or may become dangerous. Students and staff are directed to exit the building to a safe area outside. Some other examples include fire/smoke, gas leak, and a threat.
During a weather alert, students and staff move to a specific area and prepare as trained and practiced to shelter-in-place. Some examples of these are extreme weather (severe storm, tornado etc.).
