St David’s Primary School placed on lockdown on the advice of the BPS

The St. David’s Primary School staff and students were placed under a lock down for almost an hour last Friday on the advice of the Bermuda Police Service.

It’s unclear what the reason for the behind this development was.

A letter from the school’s ShaeVonne Welch Acting Deputy Principal indicated the lockdown which began at 2:30 pm and ended at 3:20 pm was “due to a potential threat in our area that was reported to police by myself”.

The nature of the threat was not revealed.

The lockdown also included the St. David’s Preschool.

A well placed source told TNN the cause for the lockdown was because a male said to be a known sex offender had allegedly entered the compound.

There was said to be some alarm among the school community because of the lockdown.

The Deputy Principal informed parents that the school’s counsellor was prepared to provide assistance to any students impacted and encouraged parents to reach out.

The Deputy Principal commended staff for their handling of the situation, remaining calm and not panicking.
