Sebring Local Schools Remains Drug Free
SEBRING, OH - Sebring McKinley Jr/Sr High School underwent a routine lockdown Tuesday, September 29 in which no illegal substances were found.
The Sebring Police Department conducted the unannounced lockdown at McKinley Jr/Sr High School Tuesday morning. Student belongings were placed in hallways, where the team employed the use of task force dog Johnny “Radar” to search for indications of illegal substances through his powerful sense of smell. Radar, who has been serving the department for 4 months, also went along the lockers and through the parking lots to investigate for any illegal substances.
“No illegal substances were found,” announced district Superintendent Toni Viscounte after the search was completed. Students then had the opportunity to meet Radar and the Sebring Police Department in the hallways.
The district is active in promoting a drug-free youth, and looks forward to educating its youngest students through Red Ribbon Week activities with students in B.L. Miller Elementary at the end of October.
