School lockdowns are becoming more commonplace each day. Whether the lockdown is due to a threat against a student, police searching for a perpetrator in the neighborhood or an active shooter, many schools have experienced them. The purpose of a lockdown is to protect the students and teachers from harm and can be "soft" or "hard" lasting from a few minutes to many hours. During a "soft" lockdown, doors are locked but instruction is continued. A "hard" lockdown occurs when there is eminent danger and everything stops.
During a lockdown, students are sequestered indoors usually in their classrooms. There may be no access to food, water or toilet facilities. Lockdown Kits have become very popular, providing supplies to help sustain students through the incident and allowing the use of the toilet.
More Prepared offers two popular kit options, one with food and water and one without. Each option comes with a pail toilet along with toilet paper, wipes, bags, deodorizing chemicals and a tarp to provide privacy. We do not recommend cat litter for absorption which can be harmful when inhaled or handled by students and especially by pregnant women.
