The district issued a statement that read, in part:
“The Davis Police Department has cleared the Holmes campus, and we will have school tomorrow. Incidents like this can cause some students to experience stress or anxiety. Please encourage your student(s) to talk to you if they were impacted by today’s event. If your student would like to speak to someone at school about what they experienced, counselors are available for support.
“In incidents like this, our first priority is to ensure that students are safe and our staff know what to do. Our next priority is to communicate clear and timely information to parents/guardians, staff and our District community. Given the current digital age, parents may be aware of an evacuation from their student/s before District communications are sent. This is a normal occurrence, and our goal is always to provide accurate information to our community as quickly as possible.”
