This morning Pequea Elementary implemented lockdown procedures. I received a call from Lancaster County Emergency Services at approximately 10:15 a.m. asking us to go into a full lockdown as a result of possible shots fired in the vicinity. At approximately 10:30 a.m. the Southern Regional Police Department contacted my office after they conducted a full investigation of the incident. The officer in charge of the investigation gave permission to end the lockdown after determining there was no danger to the students and staff at Pequea Elementary.
Students and staff responded appropriately to the lockdown and were not in danger at any time.
If you have any additional questions and/or concerns, please call me at 464-3831.
