Dear Parent and Guardians,
The Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Department notified the District of a threat against the Silicon Valley YMCA program this morning. The Silicon Valley YMCA’s facilities are located in Santa Clara, San Jose, Campbell, Morgan Hill, Saratoga, and SLV; furthermore, the SLV after-school childcare classroom at the Quail Hollow campus, the Boulder Creek Elementary School after-school daycare, and Camp Campbell in Boulder Creek operate under the supervision of the Silicon Valley YMCA and the San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District.
Under the direction of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Department, both campuses were placed on a temporary general lockdown, while deputies inspected the facilities and ensured that the buildings were secure and that all students were safe. Both campuses were deemed safe very quickly and the general lockdown was lifted.
The YMCA continues to offer regular services for students after school. Both SLVUSD staff and YMCA staff are on campus and business is going on as usual.
Thank you for your support for staff and students in SLVUSD.
