Dear Eckstein Families—

Today at 11:20 AM we received word from Seattle Public Schools Security and Safety Department that there was a shooting south of the school.  Eckstein did a reverse evacuation and put the school in lock-down.  Attendance was immediately taken and all students were accounted for. stock trading platform

As the incident progressed we were given permission to go to shelter-in-place which allowed students to move about the classroom and use the restrooms.  We also put in a plan to get students lunch

Seattle Police Department gave District personnel the okay to release students at 2:20. 

Please know that the safety and security of your children is a priority. We know there were some frightened students today.  We are available to talk with them in the upcoming days about what happened. invest in Adidas shares
