Dear Concrete Families:
We are informing you that Concrete High School entered into a temporary SECURE status during our Homecoming Dance. At approximately 7:40pm this evening, we put our schools on a SECURE status due to Domestic Argument Situation between two adults in our back parking lot. Law enforcement was requested. The situation has since been resolved and our SECURE status is no longer in effect.
During this incident, the dance continued with the exception that entry and exit of students was monitored as well as the dancers were invited to remain inside the building. Students were safe during the entirety of this incident. The SECURE was released by law enforcement at 8:28pm.
As a reminder, SECURE means that students will maintain normal activity inside the school buildings. The exterior doors are locked with no entry/exit allowed. Schools operate as usual with exception of recesses being held indoors. The Concrete School District is fully committed to the safety of our students. The district has protocols in place for such emergency situations that provide a coordinated and common-sense approach to working through emergencies that we may encounter. Staff members across the district are familiar with these procedures.
In addition, students and staff regularly participate in emergency preparedness drills which provide all participants with an understanding of responses to various crisis situations. We regard our students’ safety as our top priority.
Kristen Fairbank, Interim Concrete High School Principal
