Today's Shelter in Place

Hello Rogers Community,

This afternoon we became aware of a situation where a student may have made an attempt to injure themselves. School administration in concert with the Newport PD and the Rogers High School staff were able to identify the students who were involved. The primary student at risk was located, yet due to the time of day and in order to limit the risk of losing this student at dismissal, the Principal called a shelter in place. Within minutes the student was gathered from class and the shelter in place was called off.

At no point was the building or the general student body at risk for injury and this procedure was enacted to ensure the safety of the identified student.

Please reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns regarding this issue today.
