Hazelwood Elementary School on modified lockdown


The Clarksville-Montgomery County School SystemClarksville, TN – Hello Hazelwood Elementary School Family and Friends. This is your principal, Dr. Bellamy, letting you know that our school is on a modified lockdown due to a police situation in an adjacent neighborhood.

The Clarksville Police Department has given us assurance that the situation is contained and the house involved in the incident is surrounded. As a precautionary measure, however, we are keeping all exterior doors locked and not admitting or dismissing anyone unless they are escorted by a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy, who is on our campus.

We remained in a strict lockdown for one hour. However, because we are  uncertain about how long the situation will last, we are escorting children to lunch and to the bathrooms and having teachers resume instruction.

We are evaluating our dismissal plans for this afternoon to insure student and parent safety. I will be contacting you again with a follow up on our plans.

Again, please be assured that the safety of our children is our utmost priority and we will make all decisions based on that. Thank you.
