facebook Please be aware that the Will County Sheriff's Office SWAT team will conduct an active shooter simulation at Lakewood Falls Elementary School on Monday, April 8, 2019. The drill will run from about 4-5:30 p.m.

After the simulation, officers will continue training until about 10 p.m.

We are sharing this with the entire district because you will very likely see and hear a lot of police activity at and around both Lakewood Falls and Creekside elementary schools and in the area of Weber, Taylor and Budler roads.

This will include police, SWAT team members, mobile command vehicles and even a tank.

Please do not be alarmed.

***PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS IN THE AREA WHO MAY NOT GET THIS MESSAGE***

We are excited and happy to support our law enforcement partners in this way and look forward to continuing our strong partnership with the Sheriff's department.
Thanks! #202proud
