School Emergency Procedures

  • During an event, one or more of the following responses will be implemented in a school emergency:

    • Hold - hallways are cleared, students and staff remain in classrooms.
    • Lockout - for types of threats outside of the school building that require schools to have a secure perimeter.
    • Lockdown - for types of threats that require students and staff to remain behind locked doors.
    • Evacuate - if it is unsafe to remain inside the building, students and staff will be evacuated and if necessary, taken to another location. In most cases, a reunification site will be set up at another D38 school.
    • Shelter - for a hazard that requires students and staff to move to a safe location inside the building.
