PARKLAND, FL – Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were put once again on “code yellow” status – not allowed to leave their classrooms – on Monday morning following a road rage incident near the school, which resulted in a suspect being taken into custody, school officials said.
It was the second code yellow incident at the school in less than a week, prompting Principal Michelle Kefford, in a robocall to parents, to mind them that the school’s wellness staff is available if students experience stress or anxiety from these incidents. Friday’s incident was the result of two students jumping over a fence and leaving the campus.
As a precaution, students at nearby Westglades Middle School in Parkland were also placed on code yellow on Monday morning as well as on Friday.
Details about the road rage incident were not immediately available.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which serves students in Parkland and Coral Springs, was the site of a mass shooting on Valentine’s Day 2018 that left 14 students and three facility members dead.
