Students evacuated during drill

Capt. Matthew Krill of the Edgerton Police Department and the school resource officer for Edgerton schools directs students and teachers to buses during an evacuation drill at the school campus Friday.

EDGERTON — Nearly 700 students were evacuated from Edgerton schools Friday, but the exercise was a test of mass transportation capabilities in case of an emergency.

“We have a pipeline that runs (near) the schools and if something should happen there we’d want to get all the students out of the school,” said Capt. Matthew Krill of the Edgerton Police Department and school resource officer.
