Officers were also stationed at the high school, and au- thorities searched the Quincy area for anyone matching the suspect's description. Officers were released from the incident by 2 p.m., al- though increased patrols were scheduled to continue around all schools in Quincy and outlying areas. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said, "We handle any report like this very, very seriously." He encouraged parents and students to be increasingly vigilant and to report any sus- picious people in their schools or neighborhoods. The press release added to the suspect description, say- ing the man was about six feet tall with a medium build, thin goatee and possibly GO 43B Alta Avenue Quincy, CA (behind SavMor Gas Station) 530-283-9945  Plumas National Forest Burn Permit Booth available at the Graeagle Fire Station (Hall) Graeagle Saturday, May 1 10am to 2pm The U.S. Deportment ofAgrichure (USOA) prohibits ddmination in ell its progrems end o(fiviries on the bnsis of re, color, notiondorigin, oge, disebili/, end where epplku, sex, moritd sto, orngiol sto, porentol sto, rdigion, sexual orienion, genetic inforrnoon politkol beliefs repel, or hecnuse dl or port of on individual's income is dork, nd from ony poblk oworen progrom.

At this point no suspicious people have been located and no one else at the ele- mentary school reported see- ing anything strange, so the incident remains somewhat mysterious. Investigations Sergeant Steve Peay said he thought the two witnesses did believe they had seen the suspicious man and weren't fabricating their story. lie also indicated the sher- iff's office would meet with the school to discuss some ways the two entities can work together better in the future. Peay said these types of meetings were standard and the sheriff's office and school have held them following oth- er incidents. W-...- - ---I " "m  w -- ,,o.eer-,u,.o, e / Ill Elementary School / Principal's Message [ want to part from my normal stories to share some thoughts about the Waldorf class we will offer first graders next year. It is a very exciting opportunity for some stu- dents, but not for everyone. In our family, our oldest daugh- ter thrived in traditional classrooms and was most frustrat- ed when she was "stuck" doing group work. She enjoyed doing paper and pencil seatwork. Our youngest daughter, however, would have loved the hands-on outdoor focus with music and movement being central to the program. I wish the Waldorf opportunity had been available for her. In the end, each family needs to look at each child to decide what is best. It is nice to have two great options. Parents should know that we locked down the school Tuesday. Some students at QES said they saw a man with a gun, so the schools were locked with students in class- rooms until officers determined it was safe. If this hap- pens, no one is allowed to enter or leave until we get the all clear signal. For our students' safety, please do not come to the school if you hear it is locked down. That way officers can easily spot anyone who should not be there. We will appreciate your cooperation. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary The Spring Book Fair is this week! The students will be able to preview the book fair and bring home wish lists. Please make time in your busy schedule to stop by.
