Dear Parents / Guardians,
Today our school was placed in Lockdown from 11 a.m. to 12 noon today due to a situation external to the school. As you know, when a school is in lockdown, students and staff are not to leave their current location until told to do so by the police. Our staff and students are safe and there were no injuries related to this incident. Classes resumed shortly after 12 noon
We cannot provide you with specific information related to today’s lockdown but want to assure you that police have resolved the situation and are continuing their investigation.
Our students followed our well-practiced protocols in an exemplary manner. We are proud of our staff and students in how they handled themselves today. Coincidentally we had a lockdown drill at 9:45 a.m. today – so our students were well practiced!
Students will have varied reactions to being in a real lockdown situation. Any reaction is normal and I would encourage you to openly discuss with your child their reactions and feelings regarding today’s lockdown.
Please call the school office if you have any questions and concerns about your child.
