Shelter-in-Place at North High

Hello District 99 Families,

Due to police activity on the north side of town, we’ve been advised--out of an abundance of caution--to activate a shelter-in-place at North High. 

No one will be allowed to leave the building during the shelter-in-place. Students or visitors arriving to school will be vetted before being allowed to enter the building.

Classes are continuing as planned. Once the shelter-in-place is lifted, students will continue with their schedule.

We will update you once the shelter-in-place is lifted.

Thank you,

District 99
