Lockdown at North Otter Elementary

Out of an abundance of caution, Surrey RCMP called for the lockdown with concerns a man may show up there looking for family members.

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

Surrey RCMP called for the lockdown with concerns a man may 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.
