  • Caldwell schools have been in a lockdown mode this week, but it is not clear as to why.
    Activities have gone on as usual, but school officials said only one door is unlocked. Normally there are three doors unlocked at the school that could be entered.
    In a letter to KAKE, school officials said they had heard that someone in a nearby town had been driving around taking pictures of children on the playground. They have been holding lockdown drills since then.
    A parent told us there had been an incident with an adult at the school, and there was concern about that person.
    School officials sent a letter home with children, that referenced an event last Friday.
    Schools were not in session on Friday, Nov. 1.
    They said they have had law enforcement officials at the school earlier in the week, and they feel the schools are safe from the inside. The letter also said there was concern about “situations that might arise outside the school.”
    School officials said they would provide more information at a later time.
