We're planning our first one in the near future....I will be the main person speaking at a teachers' meeting about this as well as talking with the kids, if the school decides not to have the individual class teachers talk with their classes. What do they say at your school re. WHY we are doing lockdown training?
We had a meeting recently with our city's school safety officer and he said, "just tell the kids that sometimes bad people are in the neighborhood and the police need everyone to stay inside and be very quiet". I don't really like that "bad people" part, but not sure of what would be a beter way to say it.
Thanks for any help!
