Dear Parent or Guardian,
Today Yujin Gakuen conducted a safety drill. During the drill, we placed the school in Secure. The Secure status began at 9:15 and ended at 9:25. All school operations returned to normal following the drill.
What is the Secure Action?
The Secure Action is what used to be known at a “Lockout.” A Secure Action is called when there is a threat or hazard outside of the school building. Secure uses the security of the physical facility to act as protection.
During Secure, all students and staff are brought into the secure building and all exterior doors are locked.
Classes are able to continue uninterrupted inside the Building. Again, this was just a drill. There was no threat.
If you would like more information, you can learn more about our school safety protocols at: https://iloveuguys.org/The-Standard-Response-Protocol.html.
Note: at approximately 9:00 AM, YG office staff were notified that a person in the neighborhood was behaving erratically. The police arrived in the neighborhood and talked to the person while this was being reported. Had the police not arrived, this could have been a reason to put the school in a Secure Action. Fortunately, the police arrived. This drill was pre-planned. The police arriving in the neighborhood was coincidental.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for supporting Yujin Gakuen.
