Default Connally Unit - Lock down?

I visited my LO in Connally Unit Saturday morning. Before I left, we agreed he'd call Monday afternoon. It's pretty standard that he calls between 11am and 12pm on week days (our weekend call schedule is more random), so I asked that he stick to that time period. I haven't heard anything from him since I left visitation Saturday. When he arrived at that Unit in September, he said they would likely have a lock down before the end of the year but, since then, when I'd ask, he hadn't heard any specifics.
In early Nov., his wing was locked down for a few of days (disciplinary), but he was able to kind of sneak to the phone to let me know that they were locked down and he'd call again as soon as he could. He tends to be conscientious about getting in touch to at least let me know there isn't something bad happening.

Does anyone know if Connally is locked down?
Does anyone know if I can call the Unit and ask? This is my first experience with an LO in prison and never know what is appropriate to call about and what is stuff I just have to wait and see.

99% of the time if asked they will confirm if on lockdown. Sometimes they will say if it is incident related or just the semi-annual.

Yes. Mailroom staff will come to the housing area to drop off incoming mail and to pick up outgoing mail instead of the offender dropping it in the box on the way to chow,school,etc.

It is SO nice to hear from someone else who has a loved one at Connally. Have you been hearing from your fiancé?
I hope he is doing well.

Cool

No I have not heard from him since 11/25, I'm pretty sure they are on lockdown. I have not called but yep. They usually have these lockdowns toward the end of the year or beginning of the year. I will call the unit tomorrow just to make sure for My peace of mind. 🙄..I will provide an update shortly. y

Default Confirmation.

I received a letter from my LO yesterday. He confirmed they are in lock down at Connally He said he expects it to last about 3 weeks. He borrowed a stamp from someone, so I don't expect to hear from him again until it's over. Probably going to give him an earful, later, about making sure he has stamps in the future, just in case. This is not his first rodeo. He knew a lock down was coming. He better have borrowed another stamp so he could let his mom know, too. What a goof!
