Regarding lockdown at West Wendover schools on the morning of October 4, 2023 It is very important to us to keep our parents and families as informed as possible regarding any incidents involving our campus and students. On the morning of Wednesday, October 4 West Wendover High School was placed on lockdown after a West Wendover High School student reported seeing what they thought was a firearm in possession of another student. School administration notified law enforcement immediately. Out of precaution, WWE and WWMS were also placed on lockdown. Law enforcement located the student and began their investigation. The reports were unfounded and the student was taken into custody for further questioning. All students are safe and the campus is secure. School will continue today. Please remind your students should they ever hear or see something concerning, to always say something to a parent, staff member or trusted adult. Providing a safe and secure learning environment is our top priority at ECSD, West Wendover High School.
