Shorecrest principal Lisa Gonzalez sent this letter to families of Shorecrest students on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.
Late last night, Shoreline Police received a tip that someone may have hidden a weapon at or near Shorecrest High School. District security staff and police immediately conducted a search of the school grounds and nearby areas. They located a pellet gun in a storage shed on school grounds.
The suspected owner of the pellet gun was identified as a Shorecrest student and has been detained by police. Shoreline Public Schools has a zero tolerance policy toward weapons on campus.
The student in question will be subject to our school discipline policies and potential criminal charges from law enforcement.
Police have let us know that they do not believe that there was or is an ongoing threat to the school.
We are grateful to the member of our school community who alerted police to their concern. In cooperation with our law enforcement partners, we thoroughly investigate all school safety concerns and focus on providing all students with a safe and respectful learning environment. If you have questions or concerns about school safety, please contact our school office at 206-393-4286.
