School staff, police kept scared kids safe | Letter
Editor, The Beacon:
I want to use this letter to thank several people.
My school, Mukilteo Elementary, and Olympic View Middle School had a full lockdown on Friday as a result of a person walking around school grounds, possibly with a gun [“Local man arrested after car chase forced 2 school lockdowns,” The Beacon, page 2, April 9.
I want to thank all the staff at Mukilteo and Olympic View for keeping the kids safe. I also want to thank our police force, who have tracked down the suspect.
Several kids cried, as well as were deeply worried. Thank you so much for keeping our town safe.
