Getting Back To School: The New Normal

Elementary School Lockdown Workbook

KCSS is excited to offer the Elementary School Lockdown Workbook; Suggestions and Ideas When Teaching Lockdown Practices to Elementary School Students.

Lockdowns and other safety drills are part of a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan. Each school engages in actions designed to mitigate loss in response to a safety threat.

Although the classroom teacher is best suited to develop specific lessons/instructions for his/her class, this workbook provides ideas and samples to assist in preparing that specific classroom plan.
