Independence Jr./Sr. High School went on lockdown Tuesday morning – but it was only a drill.
Several law enforcement agencies and K-9s pulled up to the school, doing a test-run of checking the building for drugs while students and staff stayed in place.
Principal John Howard tells KMCH the safety and security of their students and staff is their top priority, so the district has collaborated with local law enforcement to hold drills on a regular basis.
