Hope Elementary School on Precautionary Lockdown - 9:25 AM
Posted 5/15/19

Good Morning Hope Families,


This is Principal Tubbs with an important message. At approximately 9:02 a.m., what sounded like gunshots were heard coming from the adjacent canyon to Hope Elementary School. Out of an abundance of caution I called for an immediate lock-down for all students and staff at Hope Elementary School. Carlsbad Police Department were immediately contacted, and responded to the incident. There is a Police Officer on site, and at this time, there is no threat to any students or staff. Instruction will continue as normal. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Because we are on lock-down, we ask you do not come to the school at this time. Do not call the office so that we can keep our phone lines clear.
