Recently, she led the instructional transformation of Portland Public Schools, as the Deputy Superintendent of Instruction and School Communities, in Portland, Oregon.

Lockdown at Lincoln Middle School

Lincoln Middle School went into a lockdown around 7:45 AM this morning after a report there might be a person with a holstered gun close to the school. Staff and students responded quickly and appropriately, our School Resource Officer was there almost immediately, and other law enforcement was there in moments. In an abundance of caution, we asked students and staff to stay in the school where they were while a search and investigation took place. The school was deemed safe by law enforcement at approximately 8:40, and the lockdown ended at that time.

This incident is a reminder that it is always better to err on the side of caution; if you see something, say something.

There were some parents who chose to come and visit with their students, or to take them home for the rest of the day following the lockdown. However, school will remain in session for the remainder of the day. Busses will run as normal.

Our thanks go out to our students and staff for their quick response and following directions, and to law enforcement for their immediate response. It is comforting to know that we know what to do in the event of a real emergency.
