Precautionary Lockdown LIFTED at Longley Way Elementary School

Longley Way Elementary School is no longer on a Precautionary Lockdown. The following email was sent to all Longley parents/guardians:

Good afternoon Longley Way Parents/Guardians,

I wanted to follow up with you and let you know the precautionary lockdown has been lifted. We were in constant communication with the Arcadia Police Department, and our safety protocols and procedures went as planned. As mentioned in our first email, there was police activity in our neighborhood; however, there was no suspect or threat on our campus. The lockdown was just a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Everyone is safe, and you may now pick up your children.   

PLEASE NOTE: We will be dismissing students by grade level through the main gate. We will start with TK/K and go from there. This will ensure a safe and orderly dismal for all. Thanks so much for your cooperation. 

I want to commend my staff and our students for calmly and quickly going into our lockdown protocol, which we routinely practice on numerous occasions each school year. While this was just a brief precautionary lockdown, it served as another good practice for our students and staff. In addition, the support from you, parents and families, was very helpful. Thank you all so much. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.
