Soft lockdown reported by Adair School District

Dr. Pamela A. Stephens,
Superintendent, Adair County Board of Education

At approximately 11:15 AM Tuesday an Adair County Schools administrator was made aware that a subject with possible sex offender noncompliance issues was on or around campus. It was reported that the subject had walked on or near campus from an adjoining apartment complex.

Once the report was received from local law-enforcement all our schools were placed on soft lockdown out of caution. Within a very brief period, less than 2 minutes, the subject was apprehended in a location off Adair County Schools campus.

At no point were any students in danger or was this subject in contact with any students or a school building.

Adair County Schools would like to say thank you for quick response from Adair County schools, administrators and staff, Columbia City Police, and other local law-enforcement agencies, including our four school resource officers Mark Harris, Adam Cravens, John Harris, and Jimmy Luttrell.
