We want to provide an update regarding the tragic situation that happened at Lee’s Summit North at approximately 7:50 a.m. Due to this matter, Lee’s Summit North immediately initiated lockdown procedures that kept all students and staff safe and contacted Lee’s Summit Police and Fire Department, working closely with our School Resource Officer and school nurse. Out of respect to the family and student privacy, we are not able to share more specific information about the incident or the police investigation. I want to commend our staff for their quick actions and our students for their compassion and sensitivity. School was dismissed at 9:15 a.m. this morning. Our district provided additional counselors for students and staff who wanted to talk after dismissal today and will continue this support next week. Given that this is an ongoing police investigation, we want to share that the most current information about this is available on the Lee’s Summit Police Department webpage at www.lspolice.net.
