Lewistown Schools Utilize Lock Out Procedures

Keeping Schools Safe

On Monday, October 2nd, 2017, at approximately 12:00 p.m. the Lewistown School District was contacted by local law enforcement and advised of a potential threat. The reported threat was of an adult male, in a neighboring county, who was armed and had made threatening statements towards law enforcement.

Although there was no indication that the suspect was in or around the Lewistown area, as a precautionary measure, the Lewistown School District and it’s officials, decided to have all Lewistown schools go into a LOCK OUT status.

LOCK OUT is a safety procedure used by the School District to instruct students to return inside their schools. All exterior doors are locked, main entrances are supervised and visitors to the schools are identified before access is permitted. Activities and classes inside the school buildings proceed as normal. 

The District was notified at approximately 1:40 p.m. that the suspect was taken safely into custody by law enforcement and the LOCK OUT status was cancelled. All schools have returned to their normal schedules and procedures. In addition, all buses will be running on their normal schedule.

The District is very proud of the response of all staff and students during the LOCK OUT and as always the safety of our students is the number one priority of the district.
