What does lock-out mean?

May 29, 2015

When schools are in lock-out, full security measures are in place. Students will remain in the buildings at all times until word comes from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Department and it is deemed safe to resume regular activities. Students will not be participating in recess or athletic activities outside today, and field trips and other extracurricular activities are cancelled until further notice.

Extra security has been placed at all schools and personnel working at school entrances have a photograph of the suspect.

 Anyone attempting entry into the buildings will be required to show a photo ID prior to the doors being opened. No exceptions.

The district’s top priority is always the safety of our students. A lock-out is the safest course of action to keep the entire school community secure and accounted for until the situation is resolved.
