Superintendent's statement

NORMAN — Formal statement

Here is the text of Stillwater Superintendent Ann Caine’s message to parents and staff after the incident occurred Wednesday:

“It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of a tragic incident at our JH this morning. At 7:50 a.m., one of our students died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. All other students and staff are safe. The JH is currently in lockdown and closed for the day. We are busing the JH students to Cimarron Plaza to be picked up by their parents. Skyline was on temporary lockdown but is now open. All of our schools, with the exception of the JH, are open today. We have sent counselors to Cimarron to be available to our students.”
