School districts throughout Lucas County have been asked to comply with requests made by the Northwest Ohio Regional Terrorism Task Force, the local agency charged with maintaining the safety and security of citizens in our area. The RTTF has asked schools to close in the event a Threat Level Red is declared by the United States Department of Homeland Security.

Should a Threat Level Red Be Announced:

  • Before school hours: Schools will be CLOSED.
    All activities and events scheduled for any district facility will be cancelled until further notice. Normal school operations will remain closed until advised to re-open by the Regional Terrorism Task Force.
  • During School Hours
    School buildings will be secured and remain open until regular dismissal time unless otherwise directed by the Regional Terrorism Task Force. All after-school activities and events will be cancelled.

How can you help?

Advise your child’s school if there are any recent changes to your child’s emergency medical information. Also, in order to keep phone lines open for possible communications from Regional Terrorism Task Force personnel, districts are asking for your cooperation in not calling the schools.
