Latest News for Watson Elementary

Watson Parent Notice – Tuesday, May 6th

Watson Families:

This morning, Tuesday, May 6th, Watson Elementary was put in external lock down. External lock downs are used when incidents occur outside the building. These are used as a precaution and during these times we do not allow anyone to enter or leave the building. Please note that there was not an incident at the school itself, again the external lock down was initiated as a result of an incident taking place several blocks away.
A short time ago the external lock down was lifted and we are now operating as usual.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call the school. Thank you and have a great day!
