Letter to Garfield Families

December 4, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Working in partnership with parents to provide open communication and ensure the safety of all students, I wanted to inform you of an event that occurred this morning. As a precaution, Garfield Elementary School was placed in a lockdown due to nearby police activity. In a lockdown, students are kept in their classrooms/activity areas and no
one is allowed to enter or leave the building. The police activity did not involve our school or any of our students. We awaited guidance from the Maywood Police Department to release the lockdown.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, should have any questions or concerns.


Ms. Marsha Alexander
