LHS Practices Lockdown

Eli Thomas, News Assistant

Just 21 days after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, students at LHS viewed an informative video on about the school’s lockdown procedure.

The video, created by Chad Arlint, assistant principal, had the motto of “if you hear it, do it.” This motto encourages students to cooperate and follow instructions carefully during a drill or emergency.

The video was followed by a lockdown drill on Friday, March 9, during the transition period between 1B and 2B. The drill ended at 9:40 a.m. and classes resumed as normal.

“Our students and staff responded well and did an amazing job,” Arlint said after the lockdown drill.

“I think everyone knew it was going to happen,” said Wyatt Carpenter, junior, about the drill. “So it wasn’t really a complete drill.”
