As we all know, Fremd recently decided to use an alarm when a hard lockdown drill is in effect. Yeah sure, they’re only trying to keep us safe from all the terrible people who don’t have Ids on. But isn’t having an alarm a little obvious about what’s going on? If someone threatening is actually in the school, they’ll hear *beep beep beep* and see that kids are running inside classrooms and they’ll probably do the same.
The whole point of the lockdowns is to have the school appear to be empty. With an alarm going off, it’ll show that there is obviously something going on. Even if everyone is a classroom, someone could still find a way to get in there. If it goes off during a passing period, what if students can’t hear it? Again, I know the school just wants us to be safe but I think they could use a different approach.
So what do you think? Is the alarm good? Should we use a different method?
