HOLD & SECURE Emergency Procedure Initiated Today by WRPS

Our school and the YMCA Childcare program was in a brief HOLD & SECURE over the lunch hour and into the early afternoon as a result of an incident at University & Glasgow. We brought students into the school early over the lunch hour and followed the inclement weather protocol for supervision. Activity in the school was “normal” – no locked doors or lights off. The HOLD & SECURE ended at around 12:45 p.m.
