EGMS Lockdown

Elton Gregory Families,

We are writing you today to inform you that our school went into lockdown for approximately 15 minutes this morning in partnership with Redmond Police Department. 

It came to our attention that a student was in possession of a knife while on campus. In order to ensure the safety of our students and staff members we placed the school on lockdown. Redmond Police Department successfully identified the suspected student and has the student in their custody. No students or staff members were injured or harmed. Redmond Police will conduct an investigation in partnership with our school.

A lockdown occurs when a threat happens inside of the school facility. When this happens our school and classroom doors lock, lights are turned off and students are asked to remain quiet while the threat is addressed by law enforcement. We train on a regular basis with students and staff using the I Love U Guys Foundation Standard Response Protocol.

We are thankful for the swift action of the Redmond Police Department and our students and staff during today’s event. If you have questions about today’s lockdown or our emergency response protocols, I welcome you to contact us at 541-526-6440.

Thank you for your time and your support in making our school a safe and welcoming environment for all students and staff.

Our Principal

Mr. Lowe is in his second year as the Principal at Elton Gregory Middle School (EGMS). Previous to moving to EGMS, he was an assistant principal at Redmond High School for three years.  Before entering school administration, Mr. Lowe taught high school social studies for twenty years, seven of which were in the Redmond School District. Mr. Lowe spent a number of years teaching in the international school system in Egypt, Ghana and Indonesia. These experiences have led him to believe that there are a variety of “right answers” to solving any problem and that the culture of the community is essential to the success of everyone. He holds a master’s degree from Lewis and Clark University and also completed his administrative licensure program at Lewis and Clark.
