DSISD Schools to Conduct Lockdown Drills

September 26, 2022

Over the next several months, all Dripping Springs ISD schools will be conducting “lockdown” drills in conjunction with the Hays County Sheriff’s Office and local emergency responders. The drills help familiarize emergency responders with the campuses and help train staff and students on the appropriate response in an active threat situation. The exercise is part of the district’s training in Standard Response Protocol, a consistent emergency procedure that is used by schools statewide. Visitors will not be permitted on campus, and students cannot be checked out or leave campus during the drills, which typically last less than an hour.
