East goes into containment

East goes into containment


East Elementary was placed on containment at approximately 1:30 p.m. today, Monday, May 20, as law enforcement officials were searching for an individual in the area.


During containment, students continue regular classroom activities; however, supervision is increased and there is no exterior recess.   


“We are being extra cautious as the safety of our students is our top priority,” said Todd Whalen, director of student services for the district. “It’s business as usual at East, except that recess will be inside for the remainder of today.”


Parents with questions or concerns may call East Elementary Principal Renee Hays at 573-842-2150.
