After the recent scare of a possible school shooter on December 10, 2019, many students wonder if we are prepared for the next situation. You could never be too careful to say that we are prepared, but many changes and preparation for another situation is issued.

According to East head dean Matt Dugan, new lockdown plans include,” listening to a lot of feedback from students and staff, reviewing a lockdown video to show exactly what to do in case the school hits another hard lockdown.” Dugan then said “internally” they are working on a”system to improve communication among staff and planning mental reps to students.”

Sadly, it is impossible to prevent an incident as many schools have experienced, but all schools within district 201 have improved on their security to make a big change and minimize the risks and threats to Morton students and staff.
