Normal Operations Resumed

Tuesday, April 4, 2023

At 11:12 a.m. today, we were informed that suspicious activity was reported in Highland Park resulting in Highland Park schools being put on lockdown.

Out of an abundance of caution, following our Emergency Action procedures, the Takiff Center went into a soft lockdown and all entrances were secured. All participants remained indoors with no outdoor activity. In addition, Glencoe Public Safety immediately increased patrols in and around our facilities.

We have remained in contact with Glencoe Public Safety, suspects are in custody, and there was no active threat to our building. All participants, teachers, and staff remain safe and well, and all normal operations have resumed. Glencoe Public Safety will continue increased patrols throughout the day.

We thank our staff for their diligence and ongoing commitment to safety.
