Q: What is a shelter-in-place?
A: Shelter-in-place is a short-term measure (measured in minutes or hours, not days) that uses a facility indoor atmosphere to temporarily separate people from a hazardous outdoor environment. If an accident or attack created contaminated air in the nearby area, everyone would be brought indoors. The staff would close all windows and doors and shut down the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. This would create a neutral pressure in the building, meaning that contaminated air would not enter the building.
Q: How long will I be separated from my child?
A: A shelter-in-place situation is a short-term event. If the air outside the school is safe for parents to breathe and safe for the children to breathe, they would then be released to the parents.
