Students and teachers at Eatonville Middle School will today help law enforcement practice what to do if a shooter ever stepped onto campus.

Training over the past year has prepared kids on how to evacuate, what to do if the school goes into lockdown, how to survive a shooter and how to assess threats.

Today’s scenarios will involve an active shooter in the school and another on a school bus. They will occur from 8:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. A SWAT helicopter is overhead during the drill.

A Department of Homeland Security grant funded the exercise, which includes personnel from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, Eatonville Police Department and county Department of Emergency Management, among others.
