This is an important message for Okolona Municipal Separate School District (OMSSD) parents, guardians, and students from Superintendent Chad Spence.. Today, our campuses were placed in a soft lockdown as a precautionary measure while police investigated suspicious activity in the community. The soft lockdown was in place for about 45 minutes and was lifted as soon as we were given clearance by police. All students were safe and classroom instruction continu as usual. Please know we take these situations very seriously, as the safety of our students is always our top priority. Please contact OMSSD if you have any questions. Again, this was an important message for OMSSD parents, guardians, and students from Superintendent Chad Spence.
