WINTERS – A short shelter-in-place was implemented at Winters High School on Friday morning, prompting some homecoming events to be rescheduled.
According to the Winters Police Department, officers got a report regarding the "threat of potential violence" around 8:15 a.m. The situation appeared to stem from an ongoing juvenile dispute at Winters High, police said.
Authorities put the school on a precautionary shelter-in-place and the situation was soon de-escalated by school staff and police. The shelter-in-place was then lifted by 9:45 a.m. after finding there was no imminent danger to the campus or public.
Winters High has been in the homecoming week. According to the Winters Joint Unified School District, the homecoming game scheduled for Friday night will take place with extra security.
However, the district said the downtown homecoming rally and homecoming dance are being rescheduled.
"Student safety is our first priority, and we thank the community for their support in keeping Winters JUSD and the City of Winters a safe place for our students, staff, families, and the public," the district said in a statement.
Winters High will be taking on Willliams Friday night.
