Vance Air Force Base personnel and Enid first responders will be conducting a joint exercise involving an active shooter in a school, Friday. The exercise, formally known as Scarlet Hawk 23-04, is scheduled to last from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The exercise will take place at Eisenhower Elementary School and the area immediately surrounding the school. Eisenhower is part of the Enid Public Schools district and is located on base. Classes have not yet begun for the new school year so no students or teachers will be present in the elementary school during the exercise. Active-duty role players will help add realism to the training scenario. During the exercise, access to the base will change from normal. The Hairston Gate, the main entrance off Southgate Road, will be closed to inbound and outbound traffic. The Baker Gate, on South Cleveland, will be open for inbound and outbound traffic. Traffic barricades will be located in the Vance housing area to guide residents away from the school during the exercise. When the exercise begins, those on base will be placed in temporary lockdown. Travel will be restricted and congested. The Giant Voice speakers will make exercise announcements while emergency responders, both military and civilian, will be moving toward and around the elementary school.

NS)--Attorneys and clients involved with a lawsuit against Kingfisher Public Schools met in a federal courthouse Wednesday as a judge ordered a settlement conference in the case. However, an attorney representing the school district said there was no settlement reached. The lawsuit was filed by a former student, Mason Mecklenburg, in July 2021, in Kingfisher County District Court against Kingfisher Public Schools, head football coach Jeff Myers and current and former assistant coaches Micah Nall, Derek Patterson and Blake Eaton. Mecklenburg alleges he was subjected to mental, physical and sexual abuse while a member of KHS football team. The case later was moved to federal jurisdiction in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. The case is scheduled for trial in December.
