Yesterday evening a Summit staff member witnessed suspicious activity at the high school. As a precautionary measure, school Administration then decided to close both junior high and high school campuses on Tuesday, February 6th, to allow the local sheriff's department to investigate further. The incident is still under investigation.Summit administration met with local law enforcement today to ensure both campuses are safe and secure. School will resume on Wednesday, February 7th. School business will be conducted as usual with additional safety measures in place to take extra caution.
As a school that offers training in fire, law, and military, we are fortunate to have many veterans as well as retired firefighters and peace officers on staff. Thanks to their experience and expertise, our faculty and students operate in a safe learning environment. Summit would also like to thank our local heroes in Hesperia School police and the Sheriff's department for addressing this matter with sensitivity and urgency. The High Desert truly shines when we come together as a community.Please note that a lockdown drill was already scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday. We will continue with this drill as planned; however it is only a drill.
