Skyline High School to reopen Friday after shooting threat

September 20, 2012

By Warren Kagarise

Issaquah School District administrators plan to reopen Skyline High School on Friday, a day after officials closed the campus in response to a shooting threat.

Police plan to remain on campus throughout the day, and administrators said police and school employees intend to arrive early to secure the campus and prepare for students. The school is also operating on a later Wednesday start time, so classes start at 9:55 a.m. and end at 2:16 p.m. The schedule includes all six periods.

Officials plan to make school staffers available starting at 8:30 a.m. in the Olympic Gym to answer parents’ and students’ questions. Teachers plan to speak to students in first-period classes about the incident.

District officials announced the schedule change and other precautions in a mass email to parents and school community members Thursday afternoon.
