Hold and Secure and Lockdown Definitions
If you look in the "Documents" section of this website, you will find the definitions for "Hold and Secure"  and "Lockdown".  When the school goes into "Hold and Secure", the threat is not in the building and it is business as usual.  However, no one can enter (except students and staff) or leave the building.  It is possible that a "Hold and Secure" can become a "Lockdown" situation and vice-versa.
