The purpose of ”Alma and the Lockdown Drill” is to explain to young students why we have security at their schools in a simple way, and to explain the procedures of a lockdown. Every school is unique, but the principles of a lockdown are universal. Lockdown drills are designed to allow students and teachers to practice how to barricade themselves inside a classroom. By practicing a lockdown, the students and teachers prepare themselves, so that they would be protected if they were to face an external threat. The book contains work material and questions that help facilitate a discussion about lockdown procedures which are specific to your school. There are guidelines, both to generate discussion with students and to direct the teacher in how to conduct the drills. Before using the book and its materials, it is important that you know the school’s lockdown procedures. If your school does not have procedures yet, we recommend that you discuss the topic with management and develop your own approach.
