ASHLAND – Students and staff at the Henry E. Warren School had a ‘stay-in-place” this morning, due to an adult on “Fruit Street” acting “unsafe.”
“We had a Stay in Place at our school. This means that children continued with normal activities in the classroom but did not move about the building, and students that were outdoors for recess were immediately brought inside for indoor recess,” said Principal Peter Regan to families just after 3 p.m. today.
“At 11:26 AM I received information that an adult was in the road on Fruit Street (not close to the school) acting unsafe. We immediately called for a Stay in Place. After approximately 7 minutes, the Ashland Police had the unsafe adult in custody and the Stay in Place was lifted at the school. We appreciate the great communication that the Ashland Public Schools has with all of our emergency services in town,” said the Principal in his email.
