McKay High School will be conducting our first lockdown drill within the first two weeks of school. We are not trying to scare students and these drills will not be a simulation of a threat. We do want students to take the drills seriously so they are familiar with lockdown routines and procedures. These drills are helpful for any circumstance. In the event of any potential hazard, it is useful for us to practice lockdown drills just like fire drills and earthquake drills. If you ever have any safety concerns, or notice any gaps in our security, then please tell us. As parents, you have a valuable perspective that can help us improve our safety procedures.
