Rockford Scanner™: Reports of A Local School On Lock Down

Several sources are reporting several emergency personnel are at the Belvidere School and that it is on lock down.

We have gotten several reports of this.

It is not yet known exactly what is going on at the time of writing this.

Just several reports of numerous emergency personnel on scene and the kids are on lock down.

Please avoid the area.

After we posted this, the school put out the following:

Dear BHS Parents & Guardians,

Due to a medication situation at the end of the day, we experienced a slight delay in dismissal today. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Billy Lewis
Principal, Belvidere High School

Update: We asked the school what a “Medication Situation” was and why it caused the school to be delayed for dismissal. We are awaiting to hear a response.

Many people said it was on lockdown. A fan said their child that goes to the school, told the parent they do not use the term “Soft Lockdown” anymore, but use this new term “Medication Situation” which means they were technically on lockdown, but used a different term

If the school responds to us, we will update this again.

Rockford Scanner™: RS FAN SUBMISSION: Dash Camera Video, Roscoe IL

Editors Note:  We highly recommend investing into a dash camera!  Dash cameras always show exactly what happens in an incident. Many people lie and deny stuff when they are involved in an incident, but then a camera shows exactly what happens.  Always 3 sides to a story: Theirs, Yours, And  A Camera!  A camera never lies 😉

“Cammer turning left onto Elevator rd in Roscoe You’ll see car in front of cammer, will have the right of way to turn once cross traffic clears.
The silver SUV across the street will turn left after
Cammer is next to turn left after the silver SUV makes their left hand turn.
Behind that silver SUV is a white SUV ( the guy who doesn’t understand the rules of the road ) It was the cammers turn to go into traffic and the white SUV piggy backed a turn, leaving cammers car out into cross traffic.”
