Students at Clackamas High School were on lockout, which included some lockdown procedures,  for about 15 minutes Monday morning following reports about a student who arrived on campus who no longer attended school at CHS.  CHS Principal Tammy O’Neill says the incident began at 11:46 in the upper hallway of the West Campus. An unidentified male teen was inside the school and was told to leave the property by Clackamas County Sheriff’s Deputy Jim Keen, who acts as one of the campus security personnel at CHS.  At least one student, who says she was walking behind the Deputy,  reported the officer did confront the male teen while he was inside the school and asked him to stop when the teen responded negatively.   The student then reportedly fled down the stairs, bumping into a coffee cart and throwing napkins.

The student then left the building, followed by the Deputy, who again reportedly asked the teen to stop so he could talk with him.  The boy refused and there was allegedly a small scuffle as the Officer attempted to stop the boy from moving.  The boy ran into the wooded area by the school and had not been found as of late this afternoon.   The incident was over by 11:55am, according to O’Neill.  

Some students voiced concerns to the Compass about not knowing what options they had while they were locked outside of the building during the lockout as they were traveling between the East and West campuses.  O’Neill says school resources officers and campus monitors will be reviewing protocols and procedures for future possible incidents to make sure students are aware of safety procedures and where they can go for security during any future events.   She added that the Lockdown did go well and that, “Staff reacted with the quickest actions to be the safest for students.”  A letter has been emailed out to parents regarding the incident.  Clackamas County Sheriff’s Officers do know the identity of the student and will be investigating.
