Verona superintendent apologizes for lockdown issues


VERONA (WKOW) -- Verona School District's Superintendent is apologizing to parents after Thursday's lockdown.

Several area schools were on high alert while FBI agents and local authorities searched for a "dangerous" fugitive who had been spotted in Fitchburg.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports not all Verona parents were notified about the lockdown. Email and text alerts only go to those who sign up for them.

Superintendent Dean Gorrell says the school made several website posts about the lockdown and posted on e-notification.

He says a notification system should be online for the next school year and signing up will be mandatory.
