Salida High School Responded to Salida PD Request for Added Layers of Security

In a terse press release late Wednesday afternoon, the Salida School District announced that the Salida High School campus was placed under an added layer of security for a period of time on Wednesday, February 7, 2024.

The building was placed under a “Hold” while the Salida Police Department investigated a concern.

The police determined there was no immediate threat and released the building to normal operations.

Under the “Hold in Your Classroom or Area” protocol

Students are trained to:

  • Clear the hallways
  • Remain in their area or room until the “All Clear” is announced
  • Do business as usual

Adults and staff are trained to:

  • Close and lock the door
  • Account for students and adults
  • Do business as usual

The district notes that it “appreciates everyone’s support as we all work together to investigate all concerns to student safety.”
