Lockdown is put into place during first hour

During first hour, principal Wedlock made an announcement over the intercom alerting students and teachers of a outdoor lockdown. Due to a shooting in the Harvest Acres subdivision at 6:30 a.m. this morning, all schools in the Francis Howell district will be on a, “soft lockdown”, meaning no classes will go outside and all doors will be locked. The lockdown is a safety precaution while local authorities try to determine the location of the suspects.
