Midmorning on Friday, May 13, 2016, officials at Lenape Tech in Manor Township, Armstrong County, PA, followed protocol upon learning of a potential building emergency.  Students and staff evacuated the high school to the nearby Adult Learning Center from where they were dismissed from school for the day.  Families were notified of the dismissal via the school’s broadcast system. 

The school safety team mobilized resources to verify safety and security of the buildings and campuses.  Pennsylvania State Police responded immediately to the school securing the area.  A search was conducted by officers and by a canine specializing in explosives with negative results.  At no time was there a weapon or explosive recovered.  The investigation is ongoing. 

The safety of our students and staff is always our utmost priority, states Karen Brock, Assistant Director/Principal
