The District’s primary concerns at this point are first, for the victim and his family, and second, for our students, their families and our staff at James Logan High. We would like to urge folks to keep the victim and his family in their thoughts and prayers.
We also would like to assure everyone connected with the high school that Logan is a safe campus. This incident occurred two blocks away from the school, not at the school itself. Our lockdown procedures today worked as designed, our students behaved in exemplary fashion, and parents who came to the school to pick up their children were patient and respectful.
We also would like to thank the Union City Police Department for their swift and professional response. We will cooperate in any way we can with the investigation.
Class resumed in a normal fashion this afternoon, and will be in session tomorrow. Counseling will be available for students and staff as needed.
