Hello families,

The school received two phone calls from the Longview School District today regarding police activity in the neighborhoods around St. Helens Elementary School. The events were not major incidents that required a full school lock down or activation of our St. Rose School evacuation protocols. The events simply required that we confirm that our building is secure and that we bring the students in from recess early.

It is no cause for parent or student alarm, but it gave us the opportunity to teach the students the required protocol for entering the building quickly in an emergency situation. We wanted you to informed in case your child mentioned something this evening.

Thank you for trusting us with your precious children. We are so blessed to be in such a protective and safe school environment.
Yours in Christ always,

Catherine Strader
