WAMEGO, Feb. 17, 2021 -- The Wamego school district conducted a crisis drill at approximately 2 p.m. today, according to an email sent by Superintendent Tim Winter.
"The scenario was an unknown chemical spill on the train tracks," he said. "We implemented a secure campus, which means all students stayed in their classrooms with no travel outside their classrooms until the 'All Clear' was given. During the drill, entry doors to the schools were locked and key card entry was disabled."
Winter added the district is required to conduct four crisis drills, four fire drills and two tornado drills during the school year when students are in the schools.
