Unit 10 to conduct 'active shooter' drill Monday at BGS
BRIDGEPORT - On Monday, the Red Hill Unit 10 school district will conduct its first "active shooter" drill at Bridgeport Grade School beginning at 10 a.m.  

This drill will be conducted without any students or staff on the premises, according to Superintendent Matt Seaton.  The drill is being conducted in conjunction with the Bridgeport Police Department, Sumner Police Department, Lawrenceville Police Department, Lawrence County Sheriff's Office, and Lawrence County Emergency Management Agency.  

"Residents in the area will notice several emergency vehicles at Bridgeport Grade School during this time," Seaton said.

Seaton noted that drills of this nature are now required to be held in every school building in Illinois annually after the Illinois General Assembly passed SB1625 in 2013.  Gov. Pat Quinn signed the legislation into law in July of 2013.

Any questions regarding the drill can be directed to Superintendent Matt Seaton at (618) 945-2061.
