Statement on Attack of Community Member
We are shocked and deeply saddened to learn that two women were randomly attacked while walking at the Highlands High School track early this morning. Unfortunately, one woman died from her injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
No students were on campus at the time. Highlands was placed on immediate lockdown. As a precaution, CCAA (7-12), Allison, MPR and Hillsdale were also on lockdown. While the lockdown has been lifted, Twin Rivers police officers will remain at Highlands and CCAA until the end of the school day.
The safety of our students and staff is our top priority, and we are doing everything possible to help students and staff cope with what happened this morning. We will continue to work together—parents, staff and community members—to ensure the safety of all.
We appreciate your concern and support, and know you will keep the families affected by this senseless act of violence in your thoughts and prayers.
