School dismissal was set to take place as usual, with regular after-school activities in place. 

The principal thanked students and teachers. 

“As I always say, ‘If you see something, say something,’ and that was the case today, as staff and students immediately informed us of the incident.  A caring and supportive school community is the Blair way,” Johnson wrote.
