Two more schools’ parents are getting a letter home this afternoon. This is about an incident this afternoon at the Boren Building campus, home to STEM K-8 and temporary home to Arbor Heights Elementary.
To STEM K-8 and Arbor Heights’ Families,
I am writing to let STEM and Arbor Heights’ families know that this afternoon at approximately 2:15 pm a young man entered the main doors without checking in. He was immediately noticed and because he did not have school business was politely asked to leave school property. He left the building but would not leave school grounds.
Seattle Police and SPS security were notified and the young man was arrested for trespassing. At no point were any threats directed towards SPS staff, students, or property. Some students observed the arrest during afternoon recess.
Thanks for regularly checking in and wearing visitor badges when you visit our schools. It creates a safe environment where exceptions are immediately noticed.
Benjamin Ostrom, Principal
Louisa Boren STEM K-8
Thanks to STEM parents for letting us know.
