At approximately 9:00 am this morning, Friday, November 9th the Chillicothe High School and Chillicothe Middle School complex went into a NON EMERGENCY Lock Down in order to conduct a security sweep of the facility. This is not an Emergency situation. Students and staff members are not in any danger. The security sweep is a joint effort with the Chillicothe Police Department, Ross and Pickaway County Sheriff Department, the State Highway Patrol and the Chillicothe School District Administration to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Again, this is not an emergency situation and is an effort to be proactive in keeping our staff and students safe.
