Regarding Today’s (10/25/2018) Lockdown

Our school was in a lockdown today due to a police situation in the neighborhood – not at school. The campus was secure and all students accounted for. We have no additional information regarding the situation.

His letter sent to parents and staff outlines the measures we take to ensure safety, yet reminds that we must all be vigilant and report anything suspicious immediately to school or department leaders. Those leaders will bring the information immediately to his attention. Thank you for bringing any questions you have to the attention of campus or department leaders in the district or the Superintendent’s office at or 602.257.2912.
