• 622 Crisis Response Protocol

    In the event of an emergency situation in a District 622 building, all sites follow the same protocol. The school or district will provide timely updates via the district mass notification system if the situation warrants it. Please make sure your contact information is up-to-date in Campus. To update your contact info, please visit: www.isd622.org/parentportal.

    The three levels of crisis response are: 
    1. Outside Event: If there is cause or concern outside of the school building, this protocol will be implemented. All exterior doors will be locked, and all inside activities will continue as planned. No outside passes or activity will be allowed.
    2. Inside Event: If movement needs to be restricted in the building, staff will lock classroom doors and restrict movement. No passes will be granted, and students will remain with teachers.
    3. Lockdown: This is the highest level of emergency, and used only when an imminent threat is present. Staff will immediately move students to safety and will lockdown.

    During an actual lockdown, your child’s school is a secure area. School officials and law enforcement are working together to keep everyone safe, and no one is allowed to enter or exit the school. To ensure everyone’s safety we ask that parents please refrain from coming to school campuses during a lockdown. Once the all-clear is given, students and staff will be permitted to enter or exit the school again.
