Sutter Middle School Lockdown, Police Investigating Harmful Weapon

Sutter Middle School Lockdown – Lockdown measures have been activated at Sacramento’s Sutter Middle School as a precautionary measure owing to a potential threat. The Police Department reported that the lockdown was triggered by school system officials, and they referred questions from the press media to the school administration. Al Goldberg, a school district spokesperson, declined to comment on the suspected threat, saying that the letter from the principal to the parents “serves as our statement regarding this incident.”

Tahara mentioned in her correspondence to the parents that she would provide an update as soon as fresh information became available. Authorities conducted a precautionary lockdown at Sutter Middle School in East Sacramento on Monday after receiving information from school administration that a potential threat to safety existed. Officials at the school were swift to notify both the Sacramento Police Department and the Sutter Middle School safety personnel, both of which are part of the Sacramento City Unified School District.

Tahara reported that law enforcement came on campus at 1350 I Street on schedule and discovered no evidence of a real threat. According to her, it was judged that continuing with the classes as planned was safe. Tahara stated this in an email written to the parents. “We take all matters of student safety seriously, and we do not hesitate to reach out to law enforcement any time we have a concern about safety,” Tahara stated. “I would appreciate it if you could please encourage your child to notify a teacher or administrator if there is ever a situation that could put them or anyone else in danger.” Thank you very much.”
