Medical ‘lock down’ at Pottsgrove High on first day
LOWER POTTSGROVE » There was a bit more than the usual first-day-of-school excitement Aug. 27 at Pottsgrove High School.
According to a note posted on the district’s website, the school went into “medical lockdown” first thing in the morning.
That means students and teachers had to clear the halls so a student could be taken by stretcher to an ambulance.
Gary DeRenzo, the district’s director of community relations, said the student had a pre-existing medical condition that had been triggered Aug. 27.
“The student was taken by ambulance to Pottstown Hospital,” DeRenzo told Digital First Media.
“Our students and faculty/staff responded quickly to the Medical Lockdown, we appreciate their assistance and cooperation,” Pottsgrove High School Principal William Ziegler wrote in his post.
