Early this morning (about 3:00 a.m.) there was a shooting in the neighborhood near the Marine building. This afternoon gunshots were heard in the area at about 4:00 p.m. We immediately went into lockdown and kept staff and parents in the building until police arrived. Police will patrol the area for the rest of the evening (until about 6:00 p.m. when aftercare ends). Police confirmed that shots were fired, but did not find evidence of damage to persons or property.
The safety of students and staff are our priority. We have requested additional police presence at the school and will remain in lockdown on Friday. We will maintain regular contact with police. Please exercise additional caution when entering and leaving the building.
