CULLEN TOWNSHIP — Shortly after 11:30 a.m., officials at Coatesville Senior High School received a tip from the Safe2Say line that a student on campus might be carrying a weapon on the property.
School officials immediately locked down the high school and authorities were notified. According to an email sent to parents from Rick Dunlap, interim superintendent, “Cotesville School District Police have completed their investigation and the lockdown was lifted by 1:00 p.m. No weapon was found and it was determined that it was safe to resume the school day.”
Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially on social media, from people who may be a threat to themselves or others, and to “say something” before it’s too late.
Officials reminded the public that the Safe2Say line is an effective way to share tips or immediate concerns. You can reach this line at 1-844-SAF2SAY.
