Safety Drill Today

At DRES, our goal is to keep students and staff safe at school. We continually work with county leaders to ensure coordinated responses to potential threats. We also drill for emergency situations and then review and revise plans as needed.

Today, we conducted our second lockdown drill. The purpose of a lockdown is to protect against intruders in the school building. Prior to today, teachers talked to our students to prepare them for our drill.

During a lockdown drill:

  • Students stay in place with a teacher or staff member.
  • Students and teachers remain in locked classrooms, unobservable from outside (lights-off, window blinds closed, door windows obscured with paper) and outside potential lines of fire.
  • Students and staff members disregard fire alarms.
  • No one enters or exits the school, except public safety personnel.
  • Persons in trailers remain in locked trailers. 

Our students and staff did a great job today!
