Law enforcement drills at BHS

“There are five deputy sheriffs surrounding a car in the high school parking lot right now,” came the call to The Herald Oct. 20.

Before reporters could look into what was going on, the all-call came from the school district’s notification system. The high school was conducting an active shooter drill with law enforcement and brought in a K-9 unit to give the school a sniff, just in case.

“We want to ensure Barberton High School remains a drug-free environment,” Principal Henry Muren told families in the recording.

Muren said the school did not actually lock down for the drill.
