Standard Response Protocol

  • A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff and administration.

    Our school is expanding the safety program to include the Standard Response Protocol (SRP). The SRP is based on these four actions: LOCKOUT, LOCKDOWN, EVACUATE, SHELTER.

  • Pointing hand Please take a moment to review these actions. Students and staff will be trained and the school will drill these actions over the course of the school year. Visit the I Love You Guys Foundation for more information on response protocol.
