Houston Schools is not on lockdown following Thursday’s prison escape in Licking. But Dr. Allen Moss said safety procedures are being followed.
Moss, the district’s second-year superintendent, said there is increased monitoring of students, checking doors and communication with law enforcement.
The precautions were activated after John T. Long walked away from the South Central Correctional Center recycling plant around 10 a.m. Thursday. He is still at large.
