(ABC 6 NEWS)- Kasson-Mantorville Elementary taught parents about its new plan to train students when there is an active shooter situation at school Monday night.

The Kasson Police Department use the run-hide-fight approach instead of the usual trainings because they considered it to be too predictable.


Jesse Kasel, School Resource Officer said, “And our hope is when threats come, when they know that are schools are prepared for this that they don't choose to try and attack our schools when they know we have measures in place.”

ABC 6 Betsy Singer sat down with Dodge County Emergency Management, Matt Mass to discuss how this training could benefit kids as young as six years old.

Maas said that the training is to help kids not get scared when the situation arises.
