A message from HOPEWELL HIGH SCHOOL
This is Principal Jones.
As of 7:35 AM we have been on a partial lockdown with CMS and Huntersville Police departments. There are 2 dogs on sight assisting with the search of classrooms and all hallways (including lockers) for any objects or substances that will compromise the safety of our school. Students and teachers were removed from classes as security personnel searched the designated areas, which means dogs were not near students or staff.
The search and seizure will continue throughout the remainder of the day in our parking lots and remainder of the grounds. No students or staff will be allowed to be in the parking lot until notified. Our schedule has resumed as usual.
Thank you for your partnership in assisting us with this effort to maintain the safety of our school community.
Have a great day. Go Titans!
How would you feel about this if it was your child in this situation? (p.s. my son is in 9th grade)
UPDATE: My son just got home and said that they (the cops) where actually patting students down (they did not pat my son down) .... and he heard that they found cocaine, weed and knives. I wonder if I will get an email with an update to what they found (last time they did the lockdown/search I got an email around 7pm that night saying they found drugs and 6 knives)
