Really depends on exactly what level of lockdown is required. I have teenagers who have proven that social media is far too strong a temptation over getting homework done, so I've had a get creative in my approaches.
Some companies like Google use servers outsourced for them by other companies (it means other AS number) to handle traffic to regional domains. For example is blocked by your script, but is not always blocked. To seal this leak use information stored in public DNS servers via dig(1) tool and then concatenate CIDRs with CIDRs retrieved by whois(1).
