The Camas School District notified parents that Camas High School was put on lockdown this morning because a parent reported two individuals on campus about 8:20 a.m. that did not appear to belong.
According to an email from the Superintendent Jeff Snell, a parent took a photo of two individuals with backpacks entering campus. The photo was shared with school security.
Officials could not confirm the individuals’ identities and went into lock down, according to an email sent to parents about 8:40 a.m. School buses that had not yet arrived were diverted to the bus barn.
Officials were later able to find the individuals and determined with Camas Police Department that there was no threat to the school or students.
The lockdown was lifted shortly after 9 a.m. Parents were notified that the lockdown was lifted at 9:04 a.m.
“I apologize for any inconvenience this caused. We take your students’ safety seriously,” Snell said in the email.
