In the interest of creating the safest environment possible for all our students and staff, Lincoln Public Schools is adopting a new system for responding to emergency school incidents. These incidents could be due to weather, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety.
This year LPS will use a Standard Response Protocol (SRP) to respond to emergency incidents.
The SRP is simple. It includes four specific actions that can be performed during a critical incident. They are:
- Lockout (secure the perimeter)
- Lockdown (locks, lights, out of sight)
- Evacuate (to the announced location)
- Shelter (using announced type and method)
The use of simple words and phrases will be helpful as we practice these actions with students. In addition, during an actual event everyone would know what is happening and how to respond.
