PEVS has just issued the following new statement regarding an incident on Thursday, Dec. 20:

SCHOOL SAFETY

On Thursday, December 20th, a staff member received an email that was concerning. There was no threat to any student or staff member, but in these days of heightened awareness, we decided to lock outside doors to the building as a precaution as we called law enforcement to help evaluate the situation. We did not expect anything to happen, but the safety of students and staff is always a priority. No student or staff member was in danger at any time yesterday. We are always looking for ways to improve safety and have already evaluated our procedures implemented yesterday. Drills are conducted throughout the school year to improve procedures. There is a fine line between under reacting and over reacting, but we will always take precautionary measures to protect the safety of students and staff.
