Parents of students at multiple Sunnyvale schools in lockdown because of a suspect search this morning are being told to go to a nearby intersection for more information, according to city and school district officials. The city’s website stated at 11:22 a.m. that parents should go to the southeast corner of Homestead Road and South Mary Avenue for information about the incident, which has prompted the lockdown of Cupertino Middle School and West Valley Elementary School.
The statement says children cannot be picked up at this time. City officials said a search was under way between the areas of Homestead Road, South Bernardo Avenue, Helena Drive and Wright Avenue. Cupertino Union School District spokesman Jeremy Nishihara said Cupertino Middle School, which is within the search area, is locked down while West Valley Elementary School, which is located nearby, was also locked down as a precaution. Streets are also blocked off in the area, city officials said.
