Burlington schools spent day on lockdown; students released for day


BURLINGTON, Kan. (KSNT) – Burlington Public Schools USD 244 spent today on lockdown after being notified by the Burlington Police Department of a child custody issue.

According to the administrative office, all students were dismissed for the day like normal. Parents picked their children up and others boarded buses. The lockdown was only during the school day. The following is a statement posted earlier today to the school’s website by Superintendent Cliff Williams:

“Out of an abundance of caution, we have implemented a “shelter in place.” All outside doors are locked and no outdoor activities. However, students are moving from class to class as a normal school day. If parents have business at a school today, please be patient as a staff member will have to let you in and take you to the office.”

The school is out tomorrow for Good Friday.
