3. Go to a Safe Area Where You Can Get Them
Once your children have recognized the threat and made their escape they need to connect with you.
Ideally, your child should escape to a location that has been pre-identified by you. Pick a couple of safe locations, ideally public areas that are some distance from the school. Instruct your child to flee to the safe area and call you to be picked up. Make the location far enough away from the school that it isn’t enclosed within the barricaded traffic perimeter. In the event of a shooting, police will shut down all the roads adjacent to the school. You’ll want your “safe place” far enough outside this perimeter that your access to it won’t be limited.
During an escape, your child needs to understand how to find or make the best cover.
