UPDATE (3:05 PM): MCPSS will be dismissed one school at a time with the assistance of the MCSO deputies. MCPSS will dismiss first Semmes Middle, then Semmes Elementary and then Mary G. Montgomery High School.
Update (2:36 PM): The Mobile County Public Schools System said all three schools are in “safe perimeter” rather than outright lockdown. MCPSS said it was in the process of notifying families. The dismissal is pending until all is clarified from the MCSO.
Once the school is all clear, they will carry out the dismissal. Buses will run but will be delayed according to MCPSS.
