How did this happen?
This was never a concern when I attend school.
Here is an excerpt from a Vancouver school code, I came across while sending some Dry Grad information to them. I have redacted the name of the school but suffice to say, it’s very important that we (all of us) do what ever it takes to make sure a code Red is never called, and becomes a “Remember when we used to need this” statement.
CODE RED LOCKDOWN:
- Code Red lockdown means that there is an immediate threat in the building.
- During a code red lockdown, the goal is for ALL people in the building to neither be seen nor heard
- Staff and students are to find the nearest room, close and lock the door and turn out the lights
- The room should be silent, cell phones should be set to silent
- The exterior doors will remain open to allow for RCMP and emergency personnel to enter the building
- Those who are not on campus during a lunch lockdown should NOT RETURN to xxxxxxxx. They should go to our marshalling area at xxxxxxxx Community Centre.
A message would be pushed out on the xxxx App stating that the school is in code red lockdown and that students, who are not able to get to xxxxxx, should go to xxxxxxxx.
Seriously, It’s crazy to think that in 1950 (before I was born) that students practiced hiding under there desks in case of a Nuclear attack, and today they practice hiding, turning off lights etc, incase some one who feels bad, or hears voices comes to school with violent intentions.
