This afternoon Jonestown Elementary had an intruder that caused the building to be placed on lockdown according to our district safety plan. Students and teachers were asked to remain in classrooms while staff acted in cooperation to secure the building. Pennsylvania State Police apprehended the suspect a short time later. Simultaneously, our staff worked on a safe dismissal for all students, staff, and visitors.
Friday, there will be counselors on hand for students and staff members to talk to someone.
We want to thank the Jonestown school community for your strength and support.
