Superintendent issues statement on school lock downs
A message from the superintendent of Paso Robles Public Schools
“Paso Robles Public Schools had separate incidents that required two elementary schools to be placed on precautionary lock-down,” says Paso Robles Public Schools superintendent Chris Williams. “I want to assure each of you that the safety of students, staff, and community remains as a top priority.
“District staff and law enforcement agencies completed a thorough investigation, exhausting all leads and information regarding the two incidents, and are pleased to report there were no findings or evidence to substantiate either account.
“Paso Robles Public Schools and law enforcement will continue to provide additional support for all school sites in coming days, and we appreciate your confidence and patience. Based on feedback and analysis of yesterday’s events, we have added additional steps that will provide immediate feedback and communication via our Facebook and Twitter accounts , press releases, text messaging, auto-dialer, emergency hotline ((805) 769- 1411), and email to keep parents and the public informed with accurate and timely information.
“Our belief in and commitment to every student, parent, staff, and community member drives our relentless pursuit for excellence, and we will not settle for anything less.”
