Cherokee marshals run shooter drills

Cherokee Nation marshals are running new active school shooter drills to keep Sequoyah School students safe in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.

Sequoyah High School and the Cherokee Immersion Charter School practiced a lockdown exercise Wednesday with more than a dozen Cherokee Nation marshals securing entryways and checking classroom doors. An active school shooting drill will be conducted later this spring.

Sequoyah implemented a new locked doors policy on its campus. The only unlocked door is the main entrance. The Cherokee Immersion School also has newly installed locks on all classrooms, and teachers at both schools will keep their doors locked during the school day. The Cherokee Nation Marshal Service has placed three armed officers at Sequoyah, two during the day and one in the evening.
