No drugs or contraband were found Friday during a search of Woodland Middle School by canine units from Gurnee Police Department and other area law enforcement agencies, Woodland Elementary District 50 officials said. At 9:50 a.m., district officials announced a "soft lockdown", during which students were kept in their classrooms and instructional activities continue as normal. Once the hallways were empty, teams of law enforcement officers and canine units accompanied by District 50 administrators began a systematic search of hallways, restrooms, lockers, and gym locker rooms. The search lasted approximately 35 minutes. District 50 officials said it was a pro-active step to ensure the school remains safe and drug-free.
