Run, Hide, Fight
The “Run, Hide, Fight” training has been one of several safety enhancements Bentonville High School has made since Sandy Hook. Doors are to be locked at all times. Now, the only unlocked door funnels visitors through the front office. The PTO also supplied window coverings made of felt for each classroom. The coverings are typically rolled up and can be unrolled if a situation were to occur. All district schools also do lockdown drills, said Steve Vera, resource officer. Though there isn’t a required number — fire and tornado drills are required once a month — each school should dot at least two a year.
