Dear South Meadows parents and families,

At approximately 11:30 this morning, there were some loud noises reported coming from the area south of our school. Due to the nature of the sound, we immediately called for a lockout, which means all exterior doors are locked, but students and staff can move about the building.  We also notified the Hillsboro Police Department, as well as the district office. Officers arrived and interviewed students who had heard and seen what happened, and determined it was fireworks that someone in the neighborhood had set off. The lockout ended at 12:15 p.m.

I am very proud of how our students and staff handled this potentially dangerous event and our safety team will debrief and learn from the experience. Thank you also to the parents who were detained in our building while this was happening and were very understanding.

Please do talk to your child about what happened today to further alleviate any fears they may have.

Thank you,

Becky Smith

Queridos padres y familias de South Meadows:

Aproximadamente a las 11:30 de esta mañana, se reportaron fuertes ruidos provenientes de la zona sur de nuestra escuela. Debido a la naturaleza del sonido, inmediatamente anunciamos el cierre de nuestro plantel (lockout), lo que significa que todas las puertas exteriores fueron cerradas, pero los estudiantes y el personal continuaron sus actividades dentro del edificio. También notificamos al Departamento de Policía de Hillsboro, así como a la oficina del distrito. Los agentes llegaron y entrevistaron a los estudiantes que habían escuchado y visto lo que sucedió, y determinaron que eran fuegos artificiales que alguien encendió en el vecindario. El lockout terminó a las 12:15 p.m.

Estamos muy orgullosos de cómo nuestros estudiantes y el personal manejaron esta situación potencialmente peligrosa, y nuestro equipo de seguridad analizará esta experiencia y aprenderá de ella. Gracias también a los padres que tuvieron que permanecer en nuestro edificio mientras esto ocurría y fueron muy comprensivos.

Por favor, hable con su estudiante acerca de lo que pasó hoy para aliviar aún más los temores que puedan tener.
