Participants discussed age-appropriate safety and security approaches in an active elementary school setting, modeling best practices implemented in the building's original 2012 build, to its 2017 major addition.

Mahomet-Seymour Community Schools and Ittner implemented a paradigm shift in best practices to address specific safety and security needs of early learners – unique from every other age group in PreK thru 12th grade education. The 2012 Phase One build of Middletown Prairie Elementary School featured storm shelter/safe rooms, strategically located throughout the school in the Pre-K/K classroom wings, providing refuge when an intruder is present, or from inclement weather.
