Lockout This Afternoon

Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community:

This afternoon, we had multiple reports of a sound that resembled fireworks or a gunshots outside in the general direction of the hollow.  In an abundance of caution, we called all students and staff into the building and initiated our “Lockout” process where nobody is allowed in or out of the building.  Several representatives of our Rensselaer Police Department responded and collaborated with the administrative team to investigate.  After investigation, we determined that there is not an active threat and have returned to normal operations.  The police are providing an increased presence at this time as an additional layer of safety and comfort.

Thanks to all of the students, staff, and visitors for complying with the safety procedures.  Many thanks to our #PartnersInSafety, the Rensselaer police for always being reliable partners.
