Letter from Mrs. Lent Regarding January 29 Lockout at Warren

Dear Warren Street Families:

I want to reach out to you to thank you for your support following yesterday’s lockout here at Warren Street.  It was a very busy and emotional day as we worked with district and outside agencies to ensure the safety of students, as well as providing assistance to our High School staff and students.  I recognize that this was a difficult experience for students and families and want to update you on what occurred today and supports that were put in place for your child(ren).

Upon arrival to school today, students had the opportunity to engage in conversations with their teachers and support staff about the facts from yesterday as were appropriate to share.  We felt this was important to help dispel any rumors and to answer questions for students. All students also had access to counselors throughout the school day as needed. Most importantly, we have assured students that they are safe and provided their normal school environment.

Thank you again for your patience and cooperation during this time.  We understand that there is nothing scarier than worrying about your child’s safety.  Your children are a part of our family and keeping them safe is our number one priority.  Dr. Kilburn has also shared a letter and resources for talking with your children about these experiences on our website.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at any time.


Nikki Lent, Principal
