PHYSICAL THREATS TO STAFF AND STUDENTS

If a person enters or threatens to enter the building for the purpose of causing physical violence either to persons or property:

  • Call 911 as soon as possible – explain to the dispatcher what is happening.
  • Be sure to give good directions to the dispatcher.
  • If safe, stay on the phone with the 911 dispatcher as long as possible.
  • Remove students and yourself from any danger, if possible.
  • Barricade yourself and students in a room away from the intruder.
  • If anyone becomes injured or needs medical attention, tell the 911 dispatcher.
  • Do not confront the intruder.
  • Do not leave your safe position until told to do so by police or emergency responders.
