Parents received an email from Melbourne High School today informing them that the school had been locked down as a precautionary measure.
A message from Melbourne High School
“Melbourne High is currently on lock down due to police activity adjacent to our campus. There is no immediate danger to our students or staff. We have taken this action at the direction of the Melbourne PD out of an abundance of caution. We expect to resume normal activities shortly. “
Students began texting their parents afraid, and believing it had something to do with the anti-mask protestors who for the last few days have been parked just outside the school property screaming at kids through a megaphone during class, telling them not to comply with the mask mandate.
