Active Threat Response Training - Hononegah Community High School - July 9th & 11th, 2024

Active Threat training taking place at Hononegah on July 9th & 11th. As other local departments have done in recent years, we are working in collaboration with Roscoe and South Beloit Police Departments, as well as the Rockton and Harlem Roscoe Fire Departments, to host Active Threat training exercises at Hononegah Community High School. These training exercises are a proactive measure to ensure our agencies work together flawlessly in the unlikely event of an emergency. The exercises will involve training and simulated scenarios designed to provide our local law enforcement and fire personnel with hands-on experience in handling such situations.

• No Students or Public Allowed in Training Area: Students will not be present during the active training exercises in the afternoon. Summer school classes will not be impacted.

• Controlled Environment: The exercise will be conducted in a controlled environment, with safety measures in place to ensure the well-being of all participants and the surrounding community.

• Access Restrictions: Access to areas of the school will be restricted during the training period. We kindly ask that you avoid coming to the campus during the active training exercises in the afternoon hours unless it is absolutely necessary.

We understand that the presence of many first responders on campus may cause some concern, so this communication is intended to alleviate any worries. Please rest assured that these measures are part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining a safe and secure environment for our students and staff. The training is designed to prepare first responders for situations we hope we never face, but being prepared is crucial for everyone's safety.
