Locking down a school means to contain teachers and students inside the school in a designated area such as a classroom or hall.
High school principals are also trained to conduct a lockout in response to a threat from outside such as a nearby police operation that might affect the school. Perimeter gates and doors are locked, allowing schooling to continue.
