“It was a layer of precaution” Muratori said. “It wasn’t related to the school at all, and there were no threats involved”

Woodlands Intermediate School entered a precautionary lockdown Tuesday morning while police executed a search warrant in a nearby neighborhood, Huron Schools superintendent Dennis Muratori confirmed Wednesday.

At about 11 a.m., Huron police entered a Westport Boulevard home, detaining 10 people and seizing a small amount of drugs, paraphernalia and handgun ammunition. About a dozen members of Erie County Sheriff’s Special Response Team assisted police at the scene.

The home is located about a mile from the school.

After learning about the warrant, Huron Schools administrators and resource officer Keith Lobsinger collaborated to enact the drill and keep potential threats out of the building and away from children, Muratori said.

“It was a layer of precaution” Muratori said. “It wasn’t related to the school at all, and there were no threats involved”

After the swarm of law enforcement officers completed their search, the district lifted the lockdown without any incidents.

How did the school know the police were executing a search warrant 1 mile away?

Efficient of the school to run a drill while potentially avoiding a dangerous situation. Well done school administrators.

I have a grandchild in that school. Good job administrators. Much better to be safe.

Wonder if the high school did the same, it's probably closer....
