Today, January 7, 2010 the Beck Middle School went into lockdown mode when graffiti of a threatening nature was found in the girl’s bathroom. This set the school’s lock down operations into motion and the police were called to the building.
The district notification system was activated and parents were called by phone to alert them of the situation. A second call followed when the lockdown was lifted.
Despite the fact that this was a hoax and the perpetrator should be dealt with accordingly, this did demonstrate that the procedures put in place by the school board for these situation does work and the school board and Beck school should be commended for that.
