Lock and Hold Communication Letter - 10.7.22

Today, our school community had a lock and hold as School Safety and School Staff investigated a situation in our building. Students and staff were not allowed to leave their classrooms during this investigation, which lasted approximately 7 minutes. NYPD responded to our school campus as well and conducted their investigation and nothing untoward was found. Upon completion, all schedules resumed as usual. Should your child require additional support relating to today’s incident, our Guidance Counselors and support staff are available to assist students as needed.
We assure you that every precaution was taken and will continue to be taken to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
We look forward to your continued involvement as we work together to ensure that I.S. 281 remains focused on the success of your children.
Maria Bender
