Statement of Safety from Superintendent Ahmed

At Hamtramck Public Schools, the safety and well-being of our school community remains our top priority. A misunderstanding took place this morning that led to our placing our schools on lockdown and contacting the police as a precautionary measure. 


After talking to the police, we learned of the misunderstanding and that our students were not in danger, so we lifted our schools from lockdown. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we will continue to err on the side of caution in the future to protect our school community.
