Schools to Perform Lock-down and Evacuation Drills

During this week, all Hillsborough County Public Schools will be performing a lock-down and evacuation drill. We want to make sure you know what to expect.

A lock-down is how our teachers and staff would respond to an active, immediate threat to students on campus. It involves taking cover, locking doors and closing windows, possibly barricading a door, and staying quiet. After that, teachers will lead students through an evacuation, which will be just like the normal fire drill they do every month. There will be no loud noises, no simulations or demonstrations of intruders, and no violent images. This will not be a surprise drill.

Teachers have been asked to talk with their students before the drill about what’s happening, and make it clear this is only practice, and not a real emergency. The goal is for students and staff to practice this procedure, and walk through the steps they would take in an emergency. Each school will schedule its own drill between Tuesday and Friday.

Again, we will make it clear to students that this is not a real emergency, and it will follow a similar process as fire drills, which happen every month, and severe weather drills, which many schools already practice at various times during the year. Our students’ safety is important to us.

Please ask your principal if you have any questions about this upcoming practice drill.


An Update from Superintendent Eakins About School Safety

We are deeply saddened by the tragic shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida yesterday. Our thoughts go out to all of the families affected by this tragedy.

Even though this happened in South Florida, we know the news and the pictures we are seeing out of Broward County is frightening for our students, families and staff. We want to share some of the safety measures and training we have had in place and our plans to reinforce the information to students and staff over the next several days.

Our hearts go out to the families and fellow educators in Broward County

We will be carefully monitoring our campuses over the coming days to ensure the safety of our students. 

If you are looking for guidance on how to speak to your children about the events that took place today, here are some helpful resources from the National Association of School Psychologists.

Student Services (School Counselors, School Psychologists and Social Workers) are available at your child's school.  We are here to help.  Please don't hesitate to ask.
