Thursday lockdown letter to parents


December 7, 2017

Dear RSD Parents,

This message is to inform you that all Richland School District schools in the City of Richland went into lockdown Thursday morning as directed by the Richland Police Department. RPD officers were searching for a suspect involved in a domestic dispute in a central Richland neighborhood.

  • The lockdown was in effect from approximately 10:15 to 11:15 am; all students were kept inside with all exterior doors locked.
  • At 11:15 am, RPD contacted RSD administration and gave the “all clear”…..that the issue had been resolved; at that point, all schools were brought out of lockdown.

This incident reminds us why all RSD schools conduct lockdown drills throughout the year…..to ensure our students and staffs are prepared for these kinds of emergency situations.

We appreciate our partnership with the RPD as RPD officers are consistently involved in our lockdown drills and with our emergency response planning.

Rick Schulte
Superintendent, Richland School District
