Christiana High School Issues Statement Regarding On Campus Incident Friday

Christiana High School officials have released a statement regarding the incident that brought a massive police response to the school on Friday.

Below is the statement:

Hello Viking Families,

Safety is our top priority, and this message is to make you aware that Christiana High School & MSHA Administration and School Resource Officer responded quickly to an incident on Campus involving trespassers from neighboring school district and Christiana students at dismissal. The Delaware State Police were contacted and brought in additional officers to ensure a safe and secure educational environment for our students, and staff members.

We are working collaboratively with the state and local police to identify the involved individuals and resolve this matter, which requires proper investigation. However, we were informed that a trespasser initiated the incident. Students will be subject to disciplinary action according to the Christina School District Student Manual and further action by the state and local police department.

We want to ensure you are receiving the correct information and encourage parents and guardians to talk to students about the importance of sharing information with adults and to immediately report any incidents involving student safety on or off-campus to a school administrator.

The State Police and district officials have deemed the campus to be safe.

The District would like to thank law enforcement personnel for their quick and diligent response as well as their continued support of the District’s efforts to ensure a safe and secure educational environment for our students, faculty, and staff members.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Christiana Vikings Campus at 302-631-2400 or the Christina School District Public Information Office at 302-552-2670.

Thank you,

Dr. Lawrence, Mr. Blair, Mrs. Herring, and Mr. Graham
