WIMS Lockdown Classroom Procedures Announcement over the PA system-Code-LOCKDOWN (Drill Code is Lockdown Drill) Teachers should quickly, but calmly do the following. Clear students from the hallways immediately and have them come into the nearest classroom. Make note of any students missing from your classroom. Check to see if the classroom next to yours has a teacher present. If not, or if a sub is present, instruct those students to quickly come into your classroom. Close and lock all windows and doors. Lower blinds on windows. 8th grade teachers cover small door window. Do not allow anyone to enter or leave the classroom once you have locked down until the all-clear announcement is given. Instruct students to move away from windows and doors to a designated area of the room previously discussed with students. (8th grade science students into supply room). Account for all students and turn off classroom lights. Each teacher should place a copy of all class rosters into folder on back of door. Teachers should tape green or red communication card on outside their classroom door. Also tape to window. Green card indicates that everything is safe in the classroom. Red card indicates that emergency assistance is needed as soon as possible. If no card is displayed, emergency personnel will assume that the intruder is in the classroom. If the intruder gains access to the room and starts shooting, instruct the students to leave the building or run to another safe area by school personnel outside the building. Remain calm and wait for further instructions from the administration or emergency personnel. Student cell phone use is not allowed. Special Classroom Situations: Students at lunch - first 4 rows of tables move into the kitchen of the cafeteria - last 4 rows exit to the locker-rooms. PE students inside the gym - students go to far corner of gym on side of bleachers, lock the gym doors, and follow the same procedures as above. PE students outside the building - teachers take the students to an area previously designated as a “safe” area by the administration. Lockdown occurs during a teacher’s planning - buddy-up with other teachers on hall and go to a secure classroom area (unless administration or emergency personnel directs the teacher to help in some manner.) If your door will not lock, move students to a classroom nearby whose doors will lock, if safety and timing permits. If not, barricade the door and move students out of the line of vision of door. Teachers in the 7th grade rooms with non-locking, connecting doors need to: o Lock hallway doors and exterior door. o Put something in front of the connecting door to block it in case the intruder gains access into the adjoining room. Lockdown code given early in the morning - all students should be instructed to get into their 1st block classes without going to lockers, breakfast, etc. Teachers then follow procedures above. Students on incoming buses will be routed to West Iredell High. Lockdown code given during a class change - students should go to the nearest classroom. Teachers immediately instruct the students in classroom procedures. Students in the library when code is given - students will be taken into the library office area, doors locked, and secured. Decisions by Administration: o Doors to be unlocked by Administration or appointed Staff. o PE teachers need phones/radios to communicate if outside.
