Please be advised that on Saturday, September 10, the area schools will be conducting a drill at Marengo Community High School from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The purpose of the exercise is to provide an opportunity for a collaborative safety drill which includes school personnel, law enforcement personnel, and first responders regarding situations pertaining to school lockdowns and crisis scenarios. During this drill the community should expect to see road closures on Franks Road and any passageways and roads between the Middle School and High School. There will be a heavy law enforcement presence, as S.W.A.T. teams, Sheriff's Office, and other law enforcement agencies will be involved in the drill. The Marengo Fire Department as well as the Fire and Rescue teams will work with other first responders, including Flight-for-Life, in simulations designed to maximize the drill. Each of the schools (MCHS, MCMS, Grant, Locust, Riley, and Zion) have been part of the planning process and will have staff either participating in the drill or observing. We will use the feedback from safety officials following the drill to implement better crisis plans at our respective schools. Please contact your school administrator if you have questions or concerns.
