Students kept inside at four West Seattle schools

In a tweet, Seattle Public Schools said that four schools in West Seattle — Sealth, Denny, Lafayette and Pathfinder — were in a state of security this morning called “shelter in place,” because the car linked to the suspect in a fatal shooting near Town Hall in Seattle has been found in the neighborhood.

Shelter in place means that a school building’s exterior doors are locked and that students are kept inside the building, but that normal classroom activities are continuing.

In a full lockdown, students are confined to their classrooms, with all interior and exterior doors locked and the lights turned off.
