SV Official Statement

January 15, 2019

For a short while earlier this afternoon our Middle School, High School and Franklin buildings were put on a soft lock-down, which means that nobody was permitted to exit those buildings. We did this as a precaution at the recommendation of the Munhall Police, who had a report that a person of interest in a crime had been spotted near Main Street. The Munhall Police took the person of interest into custody quickly, and our schools have returned to normal operations. Dismissal at all our schools will occur the same way it always does. We are grateful for the close collaboration with our municipalities, and our schools will operate on our regular schedule tomorrow. If you have any questions, please contact your building principal.
