Approximately 3:15pm, we were notified by sheriff's officers that a SWAT team had been deployed at a home near Skyline Ranch K-8, where they had cornered a potentially dangerous suspect. The school immediately went into lockdown, and Skyline Ranch parents were notified.
About 30 minutes later, we received clearance from the SWAT commander to release students. Bus riders were released one bus at a time; however, parents of students who walk or ride their bikes were asked to pick up their children.
At this time, we have just a few students who are still awaiting pick up. Parents have all been contacted, and the students are safe and are being cared for.
We would like to thank all of our families for their cooperation and for remaining calm throughout this difficult situation.
