Every student has been accounted for and has been transported to a secure location. At this time we are cooperating with law enforcement to ensure a safe and proper procedure.

No injuries,  police are accounting for all the students right now. And they are bringing the students over at Anna Page School, where they are releasing the students to the parents there.


Update from a source:  “A  woman  in the parking lot around pick up time thought she saw a man go in the building with a rifle. It was a person with an umbrella with a strap on it, and after that a man ran in the building with a hammer apparently to catch the man with the rifle that was never there. Everyone is safe. The police are doing a second sweep of the school just to be sure. But false alarm. Better to be safe than sorry. And the school is always locked no matter what time it is and everyone has to be buzzed in so they would have recognized the parent with the umbrella coming in to pick up their child.”
