Dear Deer Park Families, Staff, and Community Members:
We are writing to inform you that late last night two men were found on the roof of Holmes Elementary. Our night custodian heard the noise and notified the Sycamore Township Police Department. One man was apprehended, his airsoft rifle confiscated, and he was taken to jail. He told the police they were playing “airsoft war.” The other individual was not caught, but he is not considered a threat. After the incident, the police searched the premises and the roof thoroughly.
As always, your child’s safety is our greatest priority. We will remain in contact with our partners in law enforcement. Should the need arise, we will provide you with an update, but at this time there is no risk to our students or staff.
Achieving Excellence Together!
