Letter from Our Principal

Dear Leckie Elementary School Community,
 
Here at Leckie Elementary School, we highly value and are committed to fostering a learning environment where students feel safe and secure.  We also want to clearly communicate with parents about issues when they arise.
This morning there was police activity near our school on Rt. 295.  We immediately called central office to see if the school was impacted by the activity.  MPD assured us that the situation was contained and we were not being put on lockdown. The Office of School Security deployed staff to our school as an added precaution.
To be clear, at no time was Leckie Elementary School students or staff in any danger.  
I would like to thank MPD and the DCPS offices of School Security and School Operations for their swift action in ensuring the safety of our school community.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this incident or safety and security at our school, please feel free to contact me. Thank you again for your cooperation and support.
 
Sincerely,
 
Atasha James,
Principal, Leckie Elementary School
