LOCKDOWNS have been lifted.
At approximately 3:12 p.m. on Monday, May 2, 2022, Gowan Science Academy and Salida del Sol Elementary School initiated a precautionary lockdown after the One Button Lockdown system was accidentally triggered. Gowan Science Academy had already dismissed their students for the regular school day. Salida del Sol Elementary School promptly activated emergency lockdown procedures and the Yuma Police Department (YPD) was called to investigate. After conducting a security check of both campuses, YPD determined that it was a false alarm. All students are safe and have been dismissed for the day, and the lockdown has been lifted. School will resume as scheduled at all Crane sites tomorrow, May 3, 2022.
The lockdown emergency system at both sites is part of a district safety initiative that aligns with Crane’s emergency preparedness plan. We appreciate the timely and efficient response by school personnel, district families, and by the Yuma Police Department.
