BREAKING: Chadron Public Schools On Lockout, Police Searching For Suspect

By: John Axtell Posted at: 09/07/2017 10:27 AM
(Chadron)- Chadron Public Schools went on lockout this morning at the request of Chadron Police Department, which was searching for a suspect.

Schools Superintendent Dr. Caroline Winchester says a lockout doesn't affect regular school operations, it just shuts down the electronic key system for all outside doors and requires a staffer inside the building to visually confirm the identity of anyone wanting to enter before letting them in.

Activation of a lockout also activates the school district's automatic notification system that sends a text message to parents and others who've subscribed to it.

The police department has not released any information about the search.

As of 10:00 a.m. the school had sent out a second notification notifying that they are still in a lock down.
