School Temporarily Placed on Lockdown Following Tip

*Correction: Monte Vista was never placed on lockdown today.

Information from local law enforcement Thursday suggested an unknown subject might be close to an LCPS campus, prompting a temporary lockdown of Monte Vista Elementary.  

The subject was never confirmed to be near any LCPS campus, but preventive measures were taken. No LCPS campus was ever in any immediate danger.  

Parents are reminded to keep their email and cell phone information current with their child’s school in the event of an emergency. Information will be shared directly with parents from Las Cruces Public Schools administration regarding any potential threats to a campus.
