PASO ROBLES, Calif. -- Two Paso Robles schools went on lockdown Thursday, and luckily both schools had recently practiced lockdown training which had the students extra prepared for the real thing.
We told the story on Facebook and asked whether parents wanted us to check when their child's school was last on lockdown.
We reached out to Blochman in Sisquoc, Georgia Brown Paso Robles, Joe Nightingale Elementary in Orcutt, La Honda in Lompoc, La Canada in Lompoc, Mary Buren Elementary in Guadalupe, Miller Elementary, Nipomo Elementary, Oakley Elementary, Ontiveros Elementary and Pioneer Valley High School.
A few of the schools were closed for furlough when we called Friday. School leaders from Joe Nightingale Elementary, Nipomo, Pioneer Valley High and Miller Elementary got back to us.
The principal from Joe Nightingale Elementary said the last time they had a lockdown was on December 5th. Nipomo Elementary school officials said their last drill was October 10th and Pioneer Valley High School had a lockdown training on October 31st. Santa Maria Bonita School District officials said all of their 19 schools including Miller Elementary had their lockdown trainings in October and November.
The schools we talked with said they typically schedule more drills for students than the district requires to keep kids as safe as possible. We are still waiting to hear back from other schools about when their last lockdown drill was.
