Fairlawn students practice ‘lockdown’


Using desks and chairs to barricade the door of their Fairlawn High School Social Studies room are tenth grade students, left to right, Cade Allison, 15, of Maplewood, son of Dean and Cari Allison, Isaac Ambos, 16, son of Matt and Sara Ambos, and Garrett Smail, 15, both of Sidney, son of Kreig and Debbie Smail. Fairlawn Local School students practiced their lockdown drill Tuesday, Oct. 24. The students would use what they learned from the drill in the event of a school intruder. Representatives from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office were going from class to class before and after the drill to talk to kids about what to do in the case of a school shooter. The Sheriff’s Office representatives were also evaluating safety procedures at the school. Classrooms come equipped with Bolo Sticks which are placed at the base of each door as an additional lock. The lights are turned off and the kids squeeze into a corner of the room not visible from the door.
