first_imgUpdated – Oct. 31 – by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Thursday morning, USD 360 Superintendent Alan Jamison told KAKE News that last week there had been reports of someone in a nearby town driving around schools and taking pictures of kids on the playground. He said since then they have been conducting lockdown drills to monitor school access.The Elementary Halloween Parade is still on today in Caldwell and will not be postponed due to this situation, but perhaps because of the weather.A letter was sent out yesterday to parents. It stated that that the decision to lock the school’s outside doors was made on Monday afternoon. “Off and on we have had law enforcement in the building during the day to monitor our building and students,” Jamison said in the letter. “We do not feel we have any threat inside our buildings, but we do have some concerns about how the situation might develop outside of the school.”The letter then states: “Every school has some sort of crisis plan and we are implementing ours in a state of higher alert… We do not want to create a panic based on assumptions on what might happen, but we do feel that there is a legitimate concern and I want you to know as a parent/guardian you do have the right to do what you think is best for your student and family, even if you feel like keeping your student at home.”*****Oct. 30 story, by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Caldwell Superintendent Alan Jamison said the school district is currently in lockdown due to circumstances outside the school system.“We have been operating our lockdown drills this week,” Jamison said. “Normally, we have three doors we leave unlocked during the day. But this week we have locked those doors.“Parents who want to enter the building must buzz in first at the front doors.”Jamison said the school district will be issuing a letter to all parents at the end of today, sharing with them any information concerning the situation at hand.The reason for the lockdown was not divulged by Jamison.“I can not comment on student disciplinary matters,” Jamison said. “I will say there is no threat to the safety of the students inside the school building.”Sumner Newscow has left a message with the Caldwell Police Department that has not been returned.Usually during normal school hours, Caldwell school has three doors open, but due to precautionary measures this week those doors have been locked. Jamison said students can move from class to class without problems.This was the message sent over the USD 360 website this morning:“FYI-A letter will be coming home today with your student about our lock down drills being held the past few days. At this time there are not any known concerns inside the building, but the district will continue to monitor the situation for as long as it warrants. Our number one priority is the safety of our students.” Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Report Reply 0 replies · active 354 weeks ago -3 Vote up Vote down mom2mykids · 354 weeks ago Could this issue also be a threat to Wellington Schools? I can’t imagine a school being on lockdown but yet it isn’t an issue and students safety isn’t an issue? Im confused…obviously someone on the outside is being kept out, I hope it can’t affect Wellington or South Haven students. Report Reply 1 reply · active 354 weeks ago +17 Vote up Vote down caldwellpeep · 354 weeks ago so “just me”, what you are saying is that if there was a individual outside your childs school with a weapon you wouldnt want the school to go into lockdown until the next day when all parents had been notified? makes sense. its easy to judge when you are not the one responsible for 100’s of young lives and the staff in the building.

In the meantime rumors and misinformation will reign. Report Reply 0 replies · active 354 weeks ago +14 Vote up Vote down Caldwell Fan · 354 weeks ago It is easier said then done, but you have to trust the staff at CHS. They are, as most all school staff are at any school, very concerned and will do whatever is needed to protect the students. When there is a viable threat that has been made, In this day and age, it pays to be safe rather than sorry. Report Reply 0 replies · active 354 weeks ago +6 Vote up Vote down oldman · 354 weeks ago Folks I dont consider locking the outside doors during the day unusual. I would say its unusual that a school leaves its doors unlocked. To me a lock down is when you lock all the interior doors and restrict recesses and sports practices to in doors only. Report Reply 1 reply · active 353 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down oldman · 354 weeks ago Ok Pinocchio – which is it? “I can not comment on student disciplinary matters,” Jamison said. “I will say there is no threat to the safety of the students inside the school building.” or News that last week there had been reports of someone in a nearby town driving around schools and taking pictures of kids on the playground. He said since then they have been conducting lockdown drills to monitor school access. So was he misleading the public by first stating it was a “student disciplinary matters” ?? Report Reply 0 replies · active 354 weeks ago +11 Vote up Vote down parent · 354 weeks ago As a parent of two, I support the schools decision. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t be upset just finding all this out if we lived in that town, but I still support the school on the situation. I’m sure there was a reason for not sending a letter home earlier, for instance, maybe they thought the kids would be to scared to attend school and they wanted to continue to have the kids feel safe there. The main thing is that the kids are safe and stay safe!! If you stop and think about the kids, does anything else matter? If I lived in Caldwell I would be THANKING the school district instead of complaining to or about them. As bad as this is to say, with the way this world is today it wouldn’t hurt to keep all the schools doors locked during school hours every day anyway. Report Reply 1 reply · active 353 weeks ago -1 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 354 weeks ago “there had been reports of someone in a nearby town driving around schools and taking pictures of kids on the playground.” First, is that illegal? I don’t like the idea, and would definately have words with someone that I saw doing it, but what about the legallity of it? And does it really justify such measures? Cameras are everywhere these days. And these “reports” from another town? Which town(s)? Police reports? Why would something happening in another town(s) justify a lockdown in Caldwell? Especially something non-violent. This smells fishy… Report Reply 0 replies · active 354 weeks ago 12Next » Post a new comment Enter text right here!

first_imgMavericks star Luka Doncic will miss at least the next six games, head coach Rick Carlisle said Friday.The MVP candidate suffered a right ankle sprain in practice Thursday and was ruled out of the team’s game Friday against the Rockets. ALL-STAR GAME: Doncic voted West starterThe Mavs (29-18) are fifth in the Western Conference. Their next six opponents are the Rockets, Hawks, Pacers, Grizzlies, Wizards and Hornets. Dallas will then face the Jazz on Feb. 10.Doncic is averaging 28.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.7 assists in his second NBA season. The 20-year-old forward sprained the same ankle in December, missing four games at that time. Carlisle was unable to offer an immediate estimate for his return this time, but did say later on his radio show for Dallas station KESN that Doncic will “miss the next six games, for sure.”last_img read more
