The Belvidere School District would like to inform students, staff and area residents that there will be an "active shooter" training exercise at Belvidere High School on Tuesday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 28.

This will take place over Spring Break, when school is not in session.

There will be significant police presence on these days, according to the Belvidere Police Department.  This is only a drill.  Both the Boone County Sheriff's Department and Belvidere Police Department will take part.

"We hold these periodically to make sure our police department and sheriff's office are prepared for a mass casualty type shooting or active-shooter scenario," explained Deputy Chief Shane Woody. "This is training that we've been doing for years.  We conduct these drills twice a year."
