Lockdown Procedures

During a lock down, no person (with the exception of an official) will be allowed to leave or enter a Dickinson Public School District Building. Lock downs are initiated to protect students and staff by limiting individuals with unknown intentions from entering the building. In some instances, an outside threat may not be identifiable and allowing parents or the public into the building would place our students and staff at risk. During a lock down, staff are engaged in protecting the building from possible threats.

Please do not attempt to contact the individual school or pick up your child during a lock down.

We understand this may cause an inconvenience, but our hope is you understand we have your child and hundreds more safety in our best interest.

Please contact the Central Administration Office with any questions or concerns at 701-456-0002.
