 Letter To The Community Minimize

Dear Parents and Camas Valley Community,

I wanted to let you know that students and staff successfully put into practice safety drills they’ve learned this year. Thursday afternoon we requested local law enforcement presence to assist with a situation and were advised by the sheriff’s office to go into a precautionary lockdown while deputies traveled to our school to assess the situation.

The lockdown lasted around 35 minutes, during which students were asked to stay quiet. The situation was resolved and the lockdown ended a few minutes after the normal school day would normally end. This caused a delay of between 10-15 minutes in bus pickup and drop-off after school. We are sorry for the delay, but student safety was our priority, and we needed to wait until the sheriff allowed us to end the lockdown to release students.

Safety of students and staff is important to us, and we are very proud of the calm and collected manner in which staff and students behaved during the lockdown. Everyone at school responded as they should have and as we have practiced.

We understand the delay in communicating the incident and the change to bus drop off concerned parents and our community. Because the incident occurred at the end of the day on the final day of the school week, our ability to contact parents was limited. We have limited phone lines and personnel, so contacting all parents in a short amount of time was not feasible.

At the board meeting Thursday night, we discussed the lockdown in open session and the board supported the move to research and purchase some form of auto dialer or text service that would allow us to more quickly notify parents when there are important communications that need to happen. When we get this system in place, we will encourage all parents to sign up for the service and be a part of it. We will move to find the best fit for our district and implement that system as soon as we can.
