Lock Down Drills

Lockdown Drills

It has become a necessity for all public places to have a Lockdown Procedure in place.  Our school also has a Lockdown plan and our students have a practice drill during October and will have a second one in February.  All students should be aware of where to go in case of a lockdown, and that space is called a SAFE ZONE.  As well, all staff have been made aware of our school’s plan and have been involved in the drill.  Usually, a lockdown drill takes approximately 10-15 minutes and during that time it is necessary for all students to remain silent, so please take a moment to review this with your child tonight during homework.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding our Lockdown plan or the ELSB’s policy, please do not hesitate to call or drop by my office.

Thank you, Mrs MacKenzie

Zones of Regulation

WHAT ARE THE ZONES?

Students at GES are learning about the four zones to describe how their brain and body feel. Try asking your child what zone they are in!

BLUE Zone –Your body is running slow, such as when you are

tired, sick, sad or bored.

GREEN Zone –Like a green light, you are “good to go.” You body

may feel happy, calm and focused.

YELLOW Zone –This zone describes when you start to loose

control, such as when you are frustrated, anxious, worried, silly

or surprised. Use caution when you are in this zone.

RED Zone –This zone is for extreme emotions such as anger,

terror and aggression. When you are in this zone, you are out of

control, have trouble making good decisions and must STOP!
