Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff,
The safety and well-being of all students and staff members at P.S./I.S. 180 remain our highest priority. Toward that end, we are informing you about an incident that took place today in which no one was hurt.
At approximately 11:15 A.M., the school was informed by two first-grade students that there was a man with a weapon in the building. The school was put on a hard lockdown and NYPD was contacted immediately. NYPD immediately responded, conducted an investigation, and determined that the man the students were referring to was a worker who was working in our boiler-room and had a drill. After NYPD informed us that the building was safe and there was no threat, the lockdown was lifted at approximately 12:10 P.M. and all classes resumed as scheduled.
We assure you that every precaution was taken and will continue to be taken to ensure the safety of our students and staff. I want to thank all students and staff who cooperated during this hard lockdown. We are proud of everyone’s professionalism and orderly conduct.
We look forward to your continued partnership as we work together to ensure that P.S. 180 continues to provide the best and safest learning environment possible for all of its students and staff.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at 718-851-8070.
Principal Gary Williams
