This morning, Lee’s Summit High School received a report regarding a suspicious incident on campus.

Based on this information, Lee’s Summit High School leaders made the decision to initiate restricted movement protocols as they worked with the Lee’s Summit Police Department to investigate the report.

Students remained inside their classrooms and did not pass on to their next class. Students were also not permitted to check in and out of the school at this time.

The high school initiated restricted movement at 11:08 a.m. There was no active threat to student safety during the restricted movement, and restricted movement ended around 1:20 p.m.

The school will hold three lunch shifts before dismissing at its normal time to ensure all students have an opportunity to eat.

Our partnership with the Lee’s Summit Police Department allowed us to investigate this suspicious incident while keeping students safe.  We appreciate their partnership this morning and will be in collaboration with them upon any further activity or information.

We want to thank our families for their patience as we continue to partner with law enforcement to ensure that student safety is our top priority.
