How to handle a Lockdown at your child's school

- Do not go to your child school. Why? Police may think you are the suspect, your arrival will interfere with our lockdown procedure, and you may put yourself in danger.

- Communication regarding a lockdown will be available on the GBUSD Facebook, our web-site, and via one-call (our mass messaging system).

- Always follow the information on GBUSD Facebook, our web-site, and the one-call (our mass messaging system). We want students, staff, and you to be safe.
