Placer High School in Auburn has purchased 70 emergency kits for students and staff after a lock down last October left them without food, water or a place to use the restroom.
More than 1,300 students were kept indoors for hours as law enforcement hunted for Luis Enriquez Monroy Bracamontes, the man believed to have killed a Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy and a Placer County Sheriff's detective.
Immediately after October’s incident, school administrators took action. They purchased 70 emergency kits – one for each classroom and gym.
Each lock down kit serves 30 students.
Even the need to go to the bathroom is taken care of. The 5-gallon bucket serves as a portable restroom. School funds and donations helped pay for the kits, which cost $5,000.
