FARGO — Kennedy Elementary School was placed in lockdown twice Friday morning, Nov. 16, to address two separate student issues in the school.

"We consider student and staff safety a priority, therefore decided to have a lockdown to address these student issues in a safe manner," Principal Karri Rage said in a letter to parents.

Students remained in their classrooms during the lockdown, the letter said.

Some staff members at Kennedy Elementary, 4401 42nd St. S., needed medical attention after one of the incidents, said AnnMarie Campbell, a spokeswoman for the Fargo School District.

No further information regarding the lockdown or the student situations was released.
