DID YOU KNOW...Memorial Day is a day honoring American Soldiers who died serving our country in wars?

  • Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day honored military personnel who died in the Civil War (1861-1865). The holiday now honors those who died in any war while serving with the United States.
  • Several towns claim to be the originators of Memorial Day but in 1966, Congress declared Waterloo, New York, to be the birthplace of the holiday.

Blue Lockout on October 2, 2017 12:15 PM

Statement from the District:

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.
