The Kansas Highway Patrol trained Smoky Valley Schools on how to deal with an active shooter situation.

“Not just locking down and creating sitting duck situations,” USD 400 Superintendent Glen Suppess said, “but to do whatever it takes to stay alive.”

Suppess said USD 400 has never dealt with an active shooter situation but he's glad his staff can now remember their training if it did happen.

The training troopers provide is called KASM or Kansas Active Shooter Mitigation.
