Elementary school in Marseilles goes into “soft lock down”

Posted by wlpo on December 9, 2015

There were some anxious moments at the Marseilles Elementary School.

Police officers came to the school Tuesday afternoon and the building was put on a “soft lockdown”.  Superintendent Brenda Donahue says students stayed where they were as police cleared the scene and found there wasn’t a threat to students or staff.

When asked what prompted the lock down, Donahue said “we just wanted to be sure that all visitors were accounted for in the building”.  She says from now on, visitors to the school will have to give their name and say where they’re going before being allowed inside the building.
