HHS holds annual lockdown drill

HHS’ annual “run, hide, defend” drill was held during fifth period on Tuesday. The drill lasted from approximately 1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.

Dean Steven Puccinelli said the drill was generally successful and the police were satisfied with the school’s lockdown procedures. While the police did recommend that the barricades in classrooms could be made “higher and deeper,” the reception of the drill by law enforcement was positive, Puccinelli said.

The drill was the first since an incident of domestic violence sent HHS into lockdown last year. Other than the alarm signifying a lockdown being changed, Puccinelli said that all other procedures remained the same.
