Lockdown information at Surrey Public School

Children are our most precious resource and it is our responsibility to ensure their safety!

All Schools in ND are required to conduct emergency and disaster drills; Surrey School conducts several of these drills throughout the school year. Below are the ND century code for Emergency/disaster drills and ND DPI’s definition of a lockdown.

15.1-06-12. Emergency and disaster drills - Implementation.

Each public and nonpublic school shall conduct fire, tornado, and other emergency or disaster drills, including lockdown drills.

What is a lockdown?

A school lockdown confines all staff and students to the classroom due to a perceived or real threat; isolation of staff and students inside the school limits exposure to risk to outside contaminants: people, exposures or situations. The practice of lockdown drills acclimates both staff and students to the process and probability, and ultimately avoids unnecessary responses.

Surrey School has two types of lockdowns:

1.              Intruder lockdown- Threatening situation

2.              Non-violent lockdown- Non-threatening situation

Do to the sensitivity of lockdowns and the safety of your child, lockdown procedures are not disclosed.

Flip Flop/sandals season has officially end for elementary students on Friday 9/18. Please make sure starting Monday the 21st that your student is wearing regular shoes.

Thank you!
