In response to the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, LHS student resource officer, Robert Massey, joined The Bengal’s Purr staff in a press conference Feb. 16.

The following is a list of tips from Massey to remind students of what to do to prevent violence, and how to stay safe in case of a Lewiston High School emergency.
• Be aware. Officer Massey mentions to look up from phones and be aware of one’s surroundings.
• Students who see unfamiliar people, or someone suspicious, on campus, should report it to a nearby teacher. Every teacher and substitute should have a school badge, and visitors should check in at the office. Even a false alarm is better than no alarm, Massey said.
• Make mental notes of what to do in case of an emergency in multiple situations.
• Avoid the mindset that Lewiston High School could not experience a tragedy. Be aware and notify teachers and administration when hearing or seeing something that seems unsafe.
• Stay educated on lockdown protocol. Do not zone out when teachers give information on evacuation and lockdown protocol, because this information could be life-saving.
