All clear after ‘shelter in place’ at Greenwood Elementary School this morning

January 15th, 2014 · Comments

Students arriving at Greenwood Elementary School this morning were escorted into the building before the doors were locked for a “shelter in place.” A woman who answered the phone at the school this morning said the school district had called the school and said “there was something going on in the community,” and asked for them to implement the shelter in place out of an abundance of caution.

Witnesses tell us several police cars were outside the school.

The students had their scheduled Martin Luther King assembly in the gym, and about 20 minutes later the district called to give the all clear.

Thanks to Sandra and David for the tips!
