Ridgecrest Elementary on lock-down after receiving threatening emails

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Ridgecrest Elementary was put on lockdown Tuesday, with police on site with bomb-sniffing dogs, after several staff received threatening emails. 

This letter was sent to Ridgecrest families by principal Dr. Sue McPeak:

Dear Ridgecrest Families: 
I want to provide you with additional information related to electronic communication received by a few Ridgecrest staff. 
These staff members received anonymous, threatening emails since Sunday. We took this very seriously and reported the emails to Shoreline Police and to the District office. 
The Shoreline Police and the King County Sheriff’s office are now investigating these emails and as a precaution officers will be continuing their presence at our school again today.
 They are sweeping the building with a trained dog and will be visible on our campus. We will again secure our exterior doors and keep students inside at recess today. 
The police and I want to reassure you that we continue to believe Ridgecrest is a safe place. The safety of our students is a priority for all of us at all times. The District and the police will communicate further information as it becomes available. 
Sue McPeak, Principal
