James Fowler High School Lockdown – On Wednesday morning, a Calgary high school was placed on lockdown when it was found that a pupil was in possession of a firearm. The discovery occurred at a city school. The meeting began around 10:30 a.m. at James Fowler High School, which is located in Los Angeles’ Highland Park neighborhood.
“Staff were made aware of a student with a weapon,” said Principal Keith Johnson in an email sent to the school’s students’ parents. The email was addressed to the parents of the school’s children. “A call was placed to the Calgary Police Service (CPS), who responded quickly and resolved the issue.” The student was placed in the custody of law enforcement personnel. The lockdown was lifted about 11:15 a.m., when CPS finished removing all students and personnel from the building.
The CPS informed Global News that the incident had occurred. Johnson praised the school’s students, teachers, and staff for their “exceptional response” during the lockdown. He also hailed the cops for their prompt response. “I want you to know that the safety and security of students is our top priority, and the steps taken today were in accordance with the school’s emergency response plans,” the principal of the school said in an email to the students’ parents. The school is providing assistance to pupils who may like to speak with another individual about the “potentially upsetting event.”
