Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are sending this letter home to inform you about an incident that happened in our school this morning.
School was briefly interrupted at 10:28 a.m. due to a traffic accident near the campus involving a Honolulu Police Department (HPD) vehicle. The individual who was driving the car that struck the HPD vehicle started to flee. As a precautionary measure to ensure everyone’s safety, the school was placed on lockdown for a short period.
Classes resumed at 10:48 a.m. following confirmation from the police that the campus was safe.
I would like to commend our staff, teachers and students for their prompt response, cooperation and maturity during today’s incident. Jefferson Elementary is committed to educating our students and providing a safe campus for families and staff.
Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me at 9716922
