Garden City Public School officials say they are sending a note home to parents.  Here are the following notes.


 

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am sending you this letter to let you know that our school was placed in lockdown for a brief period of time at the beginning of school, at the request of the Garden City Police Department.  The school was locked down due to a report of an armed robber in the area of the school.
