Dear Parents and Guardians,

I want to let you know that last night our school life administrators were made aware of a possible threat to the safety of our school. The police were informed and they investigated the situation. The police officers found no viable threat, and encouraged us to continue with normal activities. Police are present on campus this morning, and periodically throughout the day, to reassure our community of its safety. We are grateful to the Spokane Police Department for their quick and thorough response.

We continue to promote, “see something, say something”, and are grateful to the students and families that brought this concern to our attention.

Blessings to you and your family,

Cindy Reopelle

Principal
