Morton 201 Statement on Berwyn West Lockdown

(Berwyn, Illinois) — Early this afternoon, Morton West High School was placed on lockdown after administration received reports of an intruder seen entering the building.


Because Morton High School District 201 treats the safety and security of our students with the utmost concern, the school lockdown was ordered as a precautionary measure.


Administrators, along with faculty and staff, immediately took action and followed the prescribed procedures for placing the school into a lockdown state until the safety of everyone in the building could be assured. Local law enforcement was immediately called to the scene to search the building and ensure the intruder was not inside.


Once it was determined that there was no threat to students, the lockdown was lifted and normal school activities were resumed at around 1:20pm.


Morton High School District 201 thanks everyone for their patience as this precautionary measure was instituted to ensure the safety and security of everyone in our charge.
