At 7:31 a.m. on Monday, May 21st the Madison Township Police Department was dispatched to an incident at a private residence on Chapel Road. The incident was reported to possibly involve firearms and in very close proximity to North Elementary School. However the incident did not directly involve the school. As a precautionary measure North Elementary School was placed in lockdown at 7:37 a.m. Officers were on scene at 7:35 a.m. and quickly determined that there was no threat to the school or other neighbors. The school was released from lockdown by 7:43 a.m., 9 minutes after being placed on lockdown.
As always we are going to take direction from the police and get communication out as quickly as possible. We appreciate the quick response of the township police department and our school resource officers. We are thankful for the quick resolution of the situation.
