Has your child school ever been on lock down? Does the school contact all the parents?

Has your child school ever been on lock down? Does the school contact all the parents? they did a lock down drill last year for the first time and should be doing another one this year. In case of a real lockdown, they will do a mass email out to all parents who have signed up for emial notifications for closing and delays. They will also broadcast on the local radio stations. The evacuation safe place is a local church and that is where parents will be pick up their kids in case of the real thing.

The high school my older ones go to had a mock emergency. Where there is a gunman, shoots fired, kids 'shot' all that fun stuff(Nick and Kimber were upset they didn't get 'killed')

All of the parents knew about it and that the district schools would be on lock down, even ran it on the tv a few days before. But I didn't say anything to the gradeschool kids since that is just something they have to grow up with now, a shame as it is.

Not sure. Nothing was ever mentioned on the 1st day of school about it. I think they were going to be doing a mock Earthqauke drill this month though. But my daughters school only goes to 6th grade.

I'm sure the high school would notify parents in the event of a lockdown.

Yes hers has- there was a shooting in the town so they went into lockdown as a precaution.
My school on the other hand has had several of them.

The school in NY had a few. But, since we moved in 2005, we haven't experienced another.
