From Amity Principal Charles Britton:
This morning, at around 9 a.m., Amity High School was placed in a lockdown.
This was only a drill. There was no emergency at Amity High School. This drill was called by the Woodbridge Police Department.
First responders from Woodbridge, Orange and the Connecticut State Police responded as if there were an actual emergency.
This drill provided first responders, and faculty and staff at Amity High School the opportunity to practice a response to a real emergency.
Students, faculty and staff performed remarkably well during the drill. Students are currently in their Spartan Seminar meetings.
The day has returned to normal.
Our appreciation is extended to the Woodbridge and Orange Police Departments, and Connecticut State Police, for their professional and prompt response.
