Lockdown Update

This afternoon at 3:09 pm our schools went into a lockdown position as a precautionary measure to keep students and staff safe.  Students were released at 3:35 pm after receiving an all clear from the police department.  Prairie Grove Police and Sheriff Departments were at the school to be sure everything was safe for students to be released.  At 3:05 pm the Prairie Grove police received notice that  a bank robber was shot in Walworth County, Wisconsin and threats had been made against his daughter who is a student at our school.

Our staff and students did an exemplary job this afternoon. We were fortunate that just this morning we practiced a lockdown drill so everyone knew exactly what to do in such a situation.  Kudos to staff and police for a job well done!
