Duck and Cover, It's a Drill! -- Maybe.

I've been following these stories for awhile now. In the UK, staged events, often surrounding UFO landings and abductions, have been put on ostensibly to foster "critical thinking" and "creativity." In reality, parents often aren't notified in advance that these events are not real but staged; often much of the staff is unaware as well.  Staged murders as well as fake UFO landings and alien abductions, robberies, shooters, bombings, and other faux events have taken place in schools in the UK, the U.S., and Canada.

While in the past scenarios similar to the one that follows, (Pro Libertate: "You Can No Longer Think of Yourselves as Peace Officers": Militarizing "Lockdown High") parents often weren't notified, the  parents in some of the following events were told that their children would be subjected to a staged drill. The thing was, the students themselves had no idea it was fake. Which is clearly the point: terrorize the students, and have them gratefully -- and unquestionably -- accept what the 'real" (i.e., non-parents) authority tells them to do. Furthermore, there is this astounding item:
"...parents had been instructed not to answer if his child issued a desperate plea for help."
That recently took place in Illinois. Students, like the following, were scared to death, literally thinking they were going to die:

It was Friday the 13th, and Skylar Walters thought he was going to die.

The 16-year-old inmate of Orangeville Jr.-Sr. High in Illinois was in gym class when a deranged-looking man barged into the school and began firing what appeared to be a handgun at several of the other students.

As the intruder fired his gun, he called out the name of a particular student; the youngster quite sensibly fled the building. Other kids "were just running everywhere and crying and hiding," Skylar recounted.
The article cites many more examples of this kind of thing; there's even a professional acting troupe that "performs" these little demonstrations of violence and fear.

I'm a bit confused about one thing William N. Grigg, the author of the above mentioned  article, writes:
Parents were required to participate passively in the scenario played out in Orangeville: They weren't informed about the event until curtain time, and then ordered to participate in an information embargo targeting their terrified kids.
Who "ordered" the parents; it's not clear how a school can "order" parents to do anything, and specifically in this context. On rereading the article, it seems the local police gave that order. Which is extremely terrifying. Wake UP Out There!

Reasons for these violent drills are given by authorities to justify these jack boot tactics: public safety, emergency preparedness, making sure students know what to do in case of a real lockdown, and so on. All disingenuous , and all highly patronizing excuses masking the real reasons.
