Per Security: Reminders -- 
Code Red: A Code Red Lockdown is used only when there is an immediate threat to the safety and security of the school, staff, and students.  This threat can either be in the building or on building grounds. Examples: Armed/ dangerous intruder in the building, confirmed armed/danger individual on building grounds
Code Yellow:A Code Yellow Lockdown is used when there is a threat in the surrounding community.  This lockdown occurs when there is no direct threat to the school at present time, but the event could quickly impact the school in the future. Examples: Suspect running from Law Enforcement in area, nearby bank/business robbery or hostage situation, criminal or suspicious activity in surrounding community
