Parents and members of the community may have been surprised if they had called Buffalo High School Wednesday morning and been told the school was under a lockdown. Immediately most would think something bad had already happened or was in the process of happening.
But according to BHS Principal Chad Bourgeois, it was only a normal, routine drill.
Bourgeois said the police K9 units responded to the high school at his request, but found nothing.
These drills are just a normal monthly procedure, he said, much like the fire drills of years past. In today's world it's just another way for staff and students, and the community for that matter, to be prepared in case of an emergency situation.
