Lockdown at North Otter Elementary

A code yellow lockdown was in effect for most of the day at North Otter Elementary on Wednesday.

Surrey RCMP called for the lockdown, with concerns a man could come by the school looking for family members who frequent the Strong Start program there, said Langley School District spokesperson Ken Hoff. The code yellow was just a precaution, said Hoff.

The man of concern didn’t come to North Otter but the school liaison officer stayed at the school all day just in case, and a letter was sent home to parents regarding the lockdown.
