Needham Safety Drill

Lockdown is followed by the Directive “Locks, Lights, Out of Sight” and is the protocol used to
secure individual rooms and keep students quiet and in place. Lockdown is a classroom-based
protocol that requires locking the classroom door, turning off the lights and placing students out
of sight of any corridor windows. Student action during Lockdown is to remain quiet.
 
All Needham staff members have undergone training on the SRP, and will be prepared to lead
the students through these drills in a calm and orderly manner. Discussions with students about
the purpose of lockdown will not include scenario based examples and will focus only on the
procedures of the drill itself.
 
For additional information regarding the Standard Response Protocol, please visit the

If you have any questions, please call or email me.
 
Sincerely,
Riley Alderton, Principal
