Canine Search 11/27/18
Published on Nov 27, 2018 10:16

Good morning,


This morning, Millis Middle/High School administrators, officers from the Millis Police Department, and canine units from neighboring law enforcement agencies conducted a sweep of the classrooms, hallways, common areas, locker rooms, and parking lots of the school campus.  Millis Public Schools are committed to keeping drugs out of our schools. Today’s procedure was conducted with this goal in mind.


Today’s sweep of the campus by law enforcement officers and Millis administrators began at approximately 8:30 and concluded at 9:10.  During first block class, the school went into a “stay in place” procedure. Students were required to stay in their classrooms and students in the hallways were escorted to their assigned classrooms.  All doors were locked and teachers remained teaching. In order to search classrooms, students were called into the hallway and asked to leave all their book bags, etc. in the classroom. Once the classroom was cleared of students, a canine officer and dog entered the room and conducted a search.  At no time did any student come in contact with any of the dogs. Students returned to their classroom following the search. The dogs used in the classroom searches were non-aggressive breeds such as labs and retrievers trained to conduct such searches. Once the search of the campus was completed, students resumed their normal schedule for the day.  I would like to thank Millis High School students for their cooperation during the search.


I hope you join me in the belief that students deserve schools that are free of illegal drugs.  We will conduct similar searches in the future with the goal to keep our school drug-free.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns,


Sincerely,


Bob Mullaney

Principal
