Dear Parents,
 
On Friday afternoon we received a phone call from the Palo Alto County Communication Center stating they received a report that a loud noise was heard near the school (similar to that of gun shots). We took precautions to check the campus for anything or anyone suspicious or out of place. We received a subsequent phone call from the Comm Center to go into Lockdown; officers were on their way to make sure the area was safe and secure.
 
The Palo Alto County Sheriff's Department concluded the noise was an engine backfire at which time we released students. The Elementary School held their shuttle so students would not be sitting idle in the heat while waiting for the other shuttle to leave Graettinger.
 
We apologize we were unable to notify you via school alerts. Since we could not, we used email and website. We are taking extra precautions to insure our School Alert System is properly in place and will update you on our communication plan very soon.
 
Thank you,
Teresa
