Dear Del Norte High Community,
We would like to address an incident that occurred earlier today at our school. It has come to our attention that a student pulled the fire alarm, resulting in a temporary evacuation of the premises. We want to assure everyone that at no time was there a fire or any immediate danger to our students, staff, or faculty.
The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority, and in accordance with our emergency protocols, the school was promptly evacuated as a precautionary measure. Our security personnel, in collaboration with local authorities, promptly responded to the situation and conducted a thorough investigation.
We would like to remind everyone that tampering with fire alarms or engaging in any activity that disrupts the normal operation of the school is strictly prohibited. We take these incidents seriously and appropriate action will be taken to minimize these occurrences.
We want to express our gratitude to all students, staff, and emergency responders for their cooperation and swift response during this incident.
