Last week staff inadvertently triggered the lockdown button on a classroom phone causing a schoolwide announcement via the digital classroom speaker. This was an accident and not a drill; however, Otis will conduct one of two mandated lockdown drills tomorrow. Teachers have prepped students in advance and have likely informed you of the drill in their class newsletters/parent communication. The drill includes:
- An all call over the loud speaker
- Locked classroom doors
- Closed windows
- Shades drawn
- Students and teachers seated in silence in a hard corner of the classroom
- Office staff checking all doors are locked and students and staff are accounted for using the Share 911 app.
- An all clear announced over the loud speaker
