Lincoln Primary School was on a temporary Lock Down this morning, Friday, January 8, 2016. A parent dropping off a student at Lincoln today reported to have seen an adult with a weapon outside the school. The Pendleton Police Department was called and responded immediately. The person was found, there was no weapon and no incident, so Lincoln School is now operating normally. Pendleton High School and West Hills Intermediate School were placed on brief Lock Downs as a precaution.
“Safety comes first in our District, and procedures were followed correctly this morning,” said Assistant Superintendent Tricia Mooney.
The Pendleton School District would like to thank the Pendleton Police Department for their quick response to Lincoln School and thank parents for always being aware of school surroundings and reporting potential problems.
Again, all schools are operating under business as usual at this time.
