It usually means an early return to the housing unit from wherever they are. It is often announced over the loudspeakers, and it can be because of a special count (someone may be missing), a lockdown, whatever.

Right, it's basically a lockdown where they have to stay in their dorms for a period of times. My husband's prison had one today. The reason - because the Assistant Warden is leaving and they were having a going away party.

In December there was one for staff to have their holiday party. They've had them for snow storms. Any variety of reasons as fbopnomore stated.

That's good that he told you in advance. Mine tries to tell me as well, but sometimes it is unavoidable and the first time it happened I got really worried. It helps to connect with another person with a LO inside that you can talk to so that if they also don't hear from your LO then you know it's usually due to a lockdown or email/phone issue and not that something happened to him.
