Lockdown Procedures Update

CRE Families: For nearly a year, administrators in Eastern Carver County Schools have been working on new lockdown procedures. Clover Ridge teachers and staff have been practicing our revised lockdown procedures for the past few weeks. Clover Ridge will now use “lockdown with options.” In the past, we have practiced “hide in place” lockdowns. Multiple law enforcement and safety agencies recommend this more proactive approach.

Rather than only hiding, we want our staff and students to run away from an emerging crisis if it is safe to do so. If not, they should hide and protect their hiding place, while keeping open the options to run or counter. Counter is the last option. It is used to distract, subdue or incapacitate an intruder if there is a direct confrontation and running is not possible. Schools are among the safest places for students. We...
