Emergency Lockdown Buckets

We suggest creating a lockdown bucket for each classroom. Each bucket should contain emergency supplies as ell as non=perishable snacks, water, and activities to be used in the event of a long period in lockdown.

Put the following items in a 5-gallon bucket:

  • First aid kit
  • Rubber gloves
  • Door jam
  • Rope or webbing, minimum 15 feet. Nylon or polypropylene
  • Tarp (6’ x 8’ or 8’ x 10’)
  • Plastic trash bags (3 or 4)
  • Window breaker
  • Cardboard/poster board to cover windows/doors
  • Toilet paper
  • Wipes
  • Water bottles
  • Duct tape
  • Hard candies
  • Crackers
  • Activities to keep children occupied
  • Phone chargers
