HOLD: This safety protocol can be initiated when the hallways need to be kept clear due to a situation inside or outside of the building. They are precautionary in nature and short in duration. Students and staff are instructed to clear the halls and remain securely in a classroom or area until the situation is resolved. Behind classroom doors, it's business as usual, although students may remain in the class longer than the normal dismissal bell. Examples: A medical emergency, maintenance problem, or safety situation where administrators, maintenance crews, law enforcement, fire, or EMS crews need to address the situation.
