ECISD School Shelters in Place

ODESSA - Ireland Elementary sheltered-in-place for a short time Thursday morning.

A burglary on Douglas Drive caused the shelter-in-place. The burglary suspect ran from authorities and, as a precaution, law enforcement requested that all students be moved back inside the building and the doors locked. The shelter lasted less than ten minutes.

In a shelter-in-place all students are moved inside the building and the school's exterior doors are locked and monitored. No one is allowed in or out of the building. Inside, school goes on as usual.
