Information About A Lockdown Today

Greetings Parents and Community Members,
As part of our ongoing effort to provide you with accurate information I would like to take just a moment to share with you details regarding a brief lock-down that occurred at our school today.
Around 12:30 this afternoon, policed informed us about a situation in the neighborhood near the Michael Berry Career Center.  As a precautionary measure, they suggested the school/campus lock all doors and have all students and staff remain inside. The situation in the neighborhood was quickly resolved and a few minutes later the school day continued as normal.
Again, this situation did not involve our school or the Dearborn Heights Campus and actions taken were precautionary measures.
The entire staff at the Dearborn Heights Campus is dedicated to the safety of all students during the school day. Today was an example of how being prepared and practicing our emergency procedures help to create a safe school experience. I know that by working together we can continue to keep our school a safe place for all students.
Thank you,
Mrs. Fournier
