On August 15th, 2021, at approximately 10:16 a.m., an officer from Taylor County Sheriff's Office identified a vehicle that was reported stolen from Sweetwater on I-20 Access Road in Trent. When the officer attempted to stop the stolen vehicle, the driver then tried to evade the deputy by getting on I-20 going eastbound in the westbound lane of traffic. Taylor County Office deputies pursued the stolen vehicle, which was later wrecked outside of Merkel City Limits. The driver fled (in the direction of MHS) on foot. He was located by Taylor County Sheriff's Office K-9 and arrested by Merkel PD's, Cheif Conklin. The person was hiding in the trees north of MHS. Rough Schedule of Events: 10:26: MPD Cheif Conklin ordered a lockdown. 10:29: MISD Security Team set a perimeter around the HS 10:32: The perimeter was pushed further by the TCSO and Highway Patrol. 11:00: MPD established security at All MISD schools (two officers were training in Sweetwater and Abilene when they received the call) 11:15: K-9 hit the ground 11:25 Drones were in the air 11:30 K-9 located the suspect, and Cheif Conklin took him into custody Again, this was only a precautionary lockdown due to the location of which the subject fled on foot. It was necessary to take this precaution to protect the children and staff of our district. The ISD performed and executed the lockdown swiftly and took all necessary steps to ensure their safety. At no time was any campus in immediate danger. MISD would like to thank Merkel PD, Taylor County Sherrif's Department and, the Highway Patrol for their swift response and guidance during this event. MISD would also like to thank our faculty and staff for the execution of the lockdown. In addition, we would like to thank our parents for remaining calm and trusting in the process. The event identified some areas where MISD is very proficient and some areas we will work on to improve the safety of our staff and students.

As we prepare students for future learning and the workplace, the Merkel Independent School District recognizes that access to reliable, secure, and robust internet services is necessary for student learning. As we continue to use and promote technology, the need to survey community access is essential to ensure that all students are able to use technology. The information collected from this SURVEY will help our school district identify and define community access and uncover and mitigate any challenges students and families may experience.
