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.

Sincerely,

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™: Anniversary Of The Devastating Belvidere Tornado




April 21st will mark the anniversary of the devastating Belvidere tornado that hit back in 1967. An EF-4 tornado with wind speeds over 250 MPH hit the Belvidere area and hitting the school.

The tornado killed 24 people and injured over 500 people. It struck when the school was letting out and many children were caught inside the buses at the Belvidere High School at 1500 East Ave, as the tornado hit the school.

Jackie Krause said she witnessed three tornadoes turn into one huge tornado.

Classroom doors were used as stretchers.
The high school gym became a morgue.

13 of the 24 deaths were at the school. 300 of the 500 injured, were also at the school.

NWS:

The Belvidere Tornado

The tornado first struck at 350 PM two miles southeast of Cherry Valley. The tornado passed the Chrysler plant near I-90 where 300 new cars and 100 employee cars were destroyed.

The tornado continued east northeast through the southeast side of Belvidere. One hundred twenty seven homes were destroyed, and hundreds more were damaged.

The most notable and horrific part of this tornado was the mayhem at the Belvidere High School. Buses had already picked up the elementary school children and were loading the high school students when the tornado struck. Twelve buses were rolled over. Students were flung like leaves into the muddy field.

Thirteen of the 24 fatalities and 300 of the 500 injuries in this tornado occurred at the high school.

According to Tom Grazulis of The Tornado Project, this was the nation’s sixth worst school death toll from a tornado. (Numbers one and two were also in Illinois – from the great Tri-State Tornado of 1925.) The tornado ended in McHenry County, about two miles north of Woodstock
