L is for Lock Down Drills
What was once acceptable to practice fire drills, now lock down drills have become common place in many districts and required by law in some States.
In case you do not know what a lock down drill is, it is when a school has identified an intruder or an emergency, and students and staff quickly leave common areas and lock themselves into a safe and secure room that have identified safe spots. The point being is that if students and staff are locked in a room, the intruder will move on because they cannot get into the room.

Procedures are in place, however it is essential that they are not made public. Students and staff know what they need to do in case of an emergency.
