Student removed from Peoria Notre Dame, school on lockdown through Nov. 17

PEORIA - Peoria Notre Dame will be on soft lockdown for the remainder of its trimester, which ends November 17.

In an email sent to parents Wednesday, principal Randy Simmons said a student was "exhibiting behaviors of concern." The district and Peoria Police Department addressed the issue, and the student no longer attends PND. Police are working with the administration to keep the school safe.

Simmons sent another email to parents Thursday, saying the school remains on soft lockdown for the rest of the trimester. Students will stay in their classrooms unless "it is absolutely necessary for them to leave during class." 

Simmons says:

We are being vigilant about school safety, so there will be a police presence around the building the next few days. When picking up your student during the school day, the front doors are the only access to the office.
