The Camas Police are in full force at Camas High School today and during their investigation have found no credible threats against the students, school, or staff, says Camas School District (CSD) Communications Director, Doreen McKercher.
“We continue to work with CPD,” said CSD Superintendent, Jeff Snell said in an email to parents. “They have increased the number of officers here. We have also increased district office staff to help with phones and attendance. Please help us during lunch of being out and about and supporting students – thank you!
“Based on the tension, we will not be supporting a student walkout today. If you could share with students that we understand their frustration, but given the day I would appreciate them going to class at the end of the second lunch.”
Announcements from CHS Administration:
- The College and Career Fair scheduled for this evening at Camas High School is canceled. We will work to identify a date and time in the future to support this event.
- Knowledge Bowl at Washougal HS is still set to occur.
- A number of families have elected to excuse their student from school today. Because of the high volume of traffic, and to best facilitate these family requests, students are being permitted to sign themselves out of school today. These absences will only be excused retroactively if we receive a voicemail or email from a parent. Please connect with your students or check their attendance in Skyward if you are unsure whether or not they are here.
- If students are absent today and have athletic events, they will still be allowed to participate. If the event is away, they will need to back at CHS in time to ride the bus.
