Dear Rich South Parents and Guardians:
Under the advisement of the Richton Park Police
Department, authorities placed Rich South on lockdown this morning. We were
notified that was a shooting in our area where the suspect was at large. During
that time, no one was allowed in or out of the building. At approximately 9:00
a.m., the Richton Park Police Department cleared the building, and lifted the
lockdown. The suspect involved in the shooting was apprehended.
Alongside the authorities, the school district has
taken the necessary and appropriate actions. We thank the Richton Park Police
Department, as well as the staff members who assisted.
School safety is everyone's responsibility and, working together, we will continue to maintain a safe school environment. We appreciate your continued support. When you have questions or concerns, please contact us at (708) 679-3000.
Principal Michael McGrone
