The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has lifted the lockdown at Lake Los Angeles Elementary after ensuring the area was safe. The lockdown was put in place after shots were fired approximately four blocks from the school. Families may now pick up their children from the morning classes at Lake Los Angeles. As an added precaution we have cancelled in-person learning for afternoon classes for today.
Lake Los Angeles is now on lockdown due to police activity in the area. As soon as more details are available, an update will be shared.
