2. Listen to Adults

Most schools have a lockdown or evacuation procedure in place should a shooter become active in the building. Of course, your child would be terrified if they faced this situation, but they need to know that their lives depend on following the directions exactly. They need to listen very carefully as their teachers or other adults tell them what to do, even if they are very scared. Your child’s school no doubt practices these drills. Consider being present for one, so you can answer any questions your child might have.
