All Chatham Central schools are releasing students 15 minutes early today, October 6, for the annually required drill to practice emergency dismissal procedures.
The lockdown alarm went off mistakenly at Chatham Middle School at 2:00 p.m. today Friday, September 29. It was a FALSE ALARM that we rectified quickly. Again, there was no threat or emergency anywhere in our schools.

When this area is blocked by parked vehicles it can lead to delays in bus arrival and departure times. Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
