 Copper River School District Lockdown 

UPDATE: SEE TROOPER STORY 

The Copper River School District announced a 15-minute lockdown at Glennallen School from 11:30 to 11:45 am on the morning of Friday, October 16th. The reason was that a "possible gunman" was in the area. 

 

School Superintendent Therese Ashton said the schools were able to reopen after Troopers "let the district's administration know the situation was well in hand." 

Glennallen High School students were not allowed to leave the campus.

The incident happened the day schools reopened after a two-day disinfection program on Wednesday and Thursday after a student in grades 3-5 came down with Covid-19. 

The Alaska State Trooper office in Glennallen did not answer its phone to provide details of the firearms incident. Phone calls to the Glennallen Troopers are patched into the Wasilla Police Department, which told the Journal they knew nothing of the case. 

The official Alaska State Trooper dispatch report on the web (which rarely seems to have information from the Copper Valley on it) did not mention the incident. And the Alaska Department of Public Safety's official state information office was not answering their phones. As of 1:30 pm on October 16th, it was hard to tell if there actually was a gunman in Glennallen, how dangerous the situation was – or any other pertinent details.
