DHS stays in SECURE status for seven minutes

Nik Shay

At 9 this morning, principal Tim Hamblin came onto the intercom and announced that DHS would go into a secure status, per the SRP Standard Response Protocol.

Hamblin sent an email within the hour, explaining the situation. 

A call was placed over a concern of a person pulling a shopping cart near the school, prompting the status. 

At 9:07 a.m, Derby police canceled the SECURE. 

In a SECURE, exterior doors to the school are locked, students outside are brought back inside, and no one is allowed to leave during the time. 

School continues as normal inside, until the status is lifted.
