Dear Tualatin High Families,
I am writing to share with you a situation that happened at school. A young woman who is not a student boarded one of our school buses and rode to Tualatin High. She was not identified as not being a student until she arrived at school and entered the building. Students immediately identified the woman, reported to staff and SRO Brian Miller took her into a room to hold while law enforcement responded. The woman was transported off campus under supervision. During the process, the rest of the school was put into a state of hold in place while police determined the safest course of action. That hold has since been released, and students and staff are clear to move around the building.
We are working closely with our law enforcement partners and have begun a full investigation of this situation. As this activity has caused a disruption to our regular morning schedule, we are communicating to keep you informed and ensure you that there is no cause for concern to our staff, students, or building.
Please know we will be working closely with our transportation partners to tighten up our process of responsibly identifying our students, and who should not be permitted to enter a bus.
My thanks to the students who brought this to our attention.
As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Michael Dellerba, Principal
