West Rowan Middle School is in code yellow lockdown today under the advisement of law enforcement, said Rowan-Salisbury School System Spokeswoman Rita Foil.

According to an email from Foil, law enforcement was called to West Rowan Middle regarding a family member that came on the school campus exhibiting inappropriate behavior.


Code Yellow means that:

• All doors to the school building are locked and secured.

• Students do not leave the building and there are no outside activities.

• Class continues as usual.

• Parents can enter, but doors remain locked after they enter or leave the building.

School Principal Nancy Barkemeyer sent a Connect-ED message to parents this morning.

Foil said the staff will continue to work closely with law enforcement.
