Amherst Regional High School 3:00 p.m.
Amherst Regional High School went into lockdown just after 2:30 p.m. this afternoon as students were preparing to leave at the end of the school day.
A heavy police presence at the moment but no fire department ambulances, so that's a good sign.
Hence the panic button.
UPDATE 3:30 p.m.
Two months ago (on a Friday naturally) the schools announced Betsy Dinger was resigning as Middle School Principal and Monical Hall from Fort River Elementary School, although she is staying in the ARPS system in the black hole known as Central Office.
Principals' offices in the ARPS system should come with a revolving door:
In December of 2012 Michael Hayes suddenly resigned as principal of the Middle School, Ray Sharick resigned from Fort River in 2011, Matthew Behnke quit as Wildwood principal in 2010 and Glenda Cresto quit the Middle School in 2009.
