What Is A Soft Lockdown
When a school announces a lockdown it can be either a soft lockdown or a hard lockdown. The soft lockdown announced by the Jerome School District allows students to continue classes as normal and the threat could be at a different location than the school. People are usually not allowed to leave the school during a soft lockdown.
During a hard lockdown, teachers and students must remain in their classrooms as the threat will be impacting the campus of the school.
