DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — On social media, many parents expressed their concern Wednesday morning regarding a lockdown that happened on the campus of Dothan High School this morning.

But no need to worry, the DCS Public Information School Officer Meagan Dorsey confirmed it was a routine drug sweep.

All students were inside their classroom for approximately two hours while DPD and K-9’s searched the hallways.

Dorsey talked about why drug sweeps are a must in the school system.

“This is a typical sweep that we usually do in our schools and we hope to do more in the future,” Dorsey said. “This gives us an opportunity to make sure our campuses are safe for our students and that they have the perfect learning environment.”

That was the first drug sweep of the year and several students agreed that they are needed in the school system.
