At the end of the day yesterday, March 10th, we received reports of sounds of what we believe to be BB-like objects in the south parking lot in front of the gym. CGHS admin has been working with the Cottage Grove Police Department to determine the facts of the situation. Out of an abundance of caution, we have closed the gym parking lot to students and have advised them to not hang out, eat lunch or sit in their cars until we can determine the source. We will have staff present in the area during passing periods and lunchtime, as well, CGPD has informed us that they have added additional patrols. Students should report any further incidents to CGHS administration or Cottage Grove Police Department.
