Today at Eckstein (from a reader):
"At approximately 9:30, Eckstein went into Shelter-in-Place. All
students and staff were safe. Police reported that there was an
Eckstein student in the neighborhood who might be armed. Police
apprehended the student at approximately 9:50 and we returned to
business as usual. The student is in custody at this time. I would
like to thank your student, the staff and SPD for their quick response
in ensuring student safety.
Your student's safety is our top
priority. If your student texts you that we are in an emergency
situation, please do not call the school as we need our communication
lines open. I promise you that I will communicate the situation as
promptly as possible. Thank you for all you do to support Eckstein
staff and students."
Have since heard grandmother called 911 this
morning that her gun was stolen and police found a gun in the bushes
near the student when he was apprehended, just a few blocks from the
Wow. Amazing how everyone - the grandmother, the police,
the Eckstein staff - all did exactly the right thing to prevent what
might have been a tragedy.
