News Release
LOSD Superintendent Letter to Parents, Staff, and Community Members about Lake Oswego High School Lockout - 03/01/19

March 1, 2019

Dear Lake Oswego parents, guardians, staff, and community members,

 

Recognizing parents’ rights and needs for timely and accurate information about student safety, I want to share with you an incident that occurred today at Lake Oswego High School. This is a followup to the lockout information we sent out via text, Twitter, push, and email earlier today.

 

A caller from outside of Lake Oswego made questionable and concerning comments to Lake Oswego High School personnel. At that point Lake Oswego Police Department (LOPD) were called to the high school. While they investigated, administrators put the school on lockout and included the Lake Oswego High School campus and Lake Oswego Junior High.

 

After the LOPD determined there was no threat to Lake Oswego High school students administrators lifted the lockout at approximately 12:28 p.m.

 

A lockout is when school operates as usual but visitors are not allowed into the buildings and students are not allowed to leave.

 

All schools are operating normally. There are no changes to today's bus schedule.

 

The police are actively investigating the incident.

 

As with all matters of student safety, we have taken this very seriously and have acted accordingly utilizing school resources and our safety protocols in partnership with the Lake Oswego Police Department. 

You can find more information at the LOPD website: https://www.ci.oswego.or.us/police/lake-oswego-high-school-placed-lockout-following-suspicious-phone-call

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Michael Musick
