STURGIS — Meade Schools were put on lockdown Thursday morning.

In a message delivered to parents and guardians via the district’s phone messaging system about 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Meade School District Superintendent Jeff Simmons said the district implemented the “secure classroom procedure” due to information given to the school.

“The police are investigating the incident. At this time there is not a direct threat to the schools or children,” he said.

Those on secure classroom status included Sturgis Elementary School, Sturgis Williams Middle School, Sturgis Intermediate School and Sturgis Brown High School.

“We are taking measures to secure the schools,” Simmons said.

No information was available as to if the secure classroom procedure had been lifted.
