Somonauk School District #432 Families, Today, as individual schools within the district, alongside the Somonauk Police department, we practiced our Run-Hide-Fight protocol with our students. This approach takes the lockdown approach that was used previously, and adds some additional options. Teachers and staff have reviewed and interacted with the Run-Hide-Fight protocol for the past year. This practice drill is required by the School Safety Act. Each school and every child did an exceptional job in this drill today, but still may have some questions for you tonight. If you have any follow up questions or concerns, please reach out to the building principals.
