Just got home and found a message on my machine from someone at keene mtn they are once again on lockdown.This really sucks This would have been our first contact visit with our son in quite a while. The man on the machine said they would be on lockdown for a couple of weeks.Do they always call when they go on lockdown? I have never recieved a call from them.

Hi there,
Do you have caller ID on your phone to check to see if that call truly came from Keene Mountain. Call up to there and ask Visitation a general question. What time is visitation this coming weekend and you will get your answer. Before I have to drive 7 hours to Wallens Ridge, I call that Friday and ask about visitation and then if I hadn't heard from my son that Thursday, I give them my son's # and ask is he on lock down. Another thing, my son is at a Supermax Level 5 and Keen Mountain is a Level 4, yet where my son is there lock-down still allows for contact visits. Now when they were on a security risk lock-down, they still allowed visitation but non-contact through the window and telephone, but never no visitations unless they are in the "hole" them selves. Different rules for different places. Again, I would check this phone call out first...
All the Best

yes they are on lockdown- here is what my guy told me in the letter i received today- that they went on lockdown monday morning just after breakfast- and then someone came around to each cell and asked if they were expecting any visits in the next 2 weekends- then if they were- they filled out a little form with the names and phone numbers of the people who they were expecting a visit from -- so that the prison could call the visitors and let them know not to come. i'm 100% sure the call really came from keen mountain. i didn't plan a visit because we had been waiting for them to go on lockdown-- they have been due for an institutional lockdown and there have been some fights, etc- so we have been expecting it the last few weeks- i figured they waited till this week so people could have the 3 day columbus day weekend to visit. they will be off lockdown in 2 weeks or so- so hopefully you can re-schedule your visit.
