False alarm causes lockdown at Crook County High School
March 14, 2013
After a report of possible shots fired in the parking lot at Crook County High School, Prineville Police Department was dispatched to the scene. The CCHS administration then placed the students and staff in lockdown. Upon police investigation, it was determined that a student had let off fireworks. After police gave an all-clear, the lockdown was removed. Students, staff, and police responded immediately and took the situation very seriously.
"A special thank you to our local police and deputies who responded so quickly to this situation, and I want to offer praise to the high school staff and students for the effective and timely lockdown procedure," commented Crook County School District Superintendent Duane Yecha on Thursday afternoon.
